The Good News Fund

Story type:

If you have a great idea for reaching out to the children and young people beyond your church but you need a little financial support to get it off the ground, we've got some amazing news for you!

We've launched our Good News Fund to provide grants to help pioneer and grow mission initiatives across England and Wales, and we're ready and waiting to receive your application.

Who's it for?

Churches who've signed up to The 95 Campaign with a great missional idea for reaching the 95.

The details

All of the details and conditions of the fund can be found on the application form. But here are some of the headlines:

  • Applications up to a maximum of £5,000 will be considered
  • All mission opportunities funded will be undertaken in partnership with Scripture Union
  • Applications for grants for salary will not be considered 

How to apply

The demand for support from the Good News Fund to trial new mission ideas was so great that all the funds allocated have now been distributed. We hope to be able to offer further support this year subject to further funding. Check back here for up-to-date information.

Mini Missionaries

Mini Missionaries – A Good News Fund success story

The ‘Mini Missionaries’ project is one of the interesting mission opportunities supported by the Good News Fund. Read about how the 'Mini Missionaries' were empowered to act on their passion to share Jesus with their friends.  All very exciting and all thanks to the Good News Fund.

The 95 Campaign

Have you joined The 95 Campaign?

The Good News Fund has been set as part of our 95 Campaign. The 95 Campaign seeks to encourage, support and equip churches for reaching the 95% of children and young people estimated not to be in chruch in England and Wales. So, whether or not you work with young people yourself, join the campaign and help us take the good news of Jesus to where the children are.
