Starter Grants

Starter Grants are available to Congregational Federation churches to ‘have a go’ at something new. We believe that all churches should aim to be as inclusive as possible, and we are especially keen to hear from churches that are looking to make this more achievable.

The main starter grant is up to a maximum of £500. An additional £250 available for churches that need to buy equipment to support those with disabilities or special needs, such as large print books, a portable ramp or specialist toys.

Criteria for application

  • The planned work must be part of the churches overall plan and vision.
  • The church should be trying something new or significantly improving an existing project.
  • All churches should have an up to date Safeguarding Certificate from the Congregational Federation.

Applications can be made at any time. For more information, contact Church Support Department.
