‘Our priority is God’s mission …’

Welcome to the Synod Grants Page

The Synod has revised its application forms for Mission and Buildings Grants, combining them into one simple form which is designed to ensure that we can collect all the information we require to progress your application quickly and effectively.

Guidence Notes and the Application Form can be downloaded below.

Any further questions you may have can be directed to Tracey Booth administrator of the Grants Committee who can be contacted at the Synod Office.

What grants can we apply for?

Churches and Missional Partnerships can apply for grants to support their local mission through a Synod – Mission Development Grant.

Grants for Building projects can also be made through the Synod and from the URC’s Church Building Fund.

Meeting dates and submission dates

The time between the deadline for application and the meetings of the Grant Committee allow for time to check applications, request additional information (if required) and to circulate papers to members of the Committee.
