Giving great ideas a helping hand

Story type:

Many churches have great ideas for sharing Jesus with the children and young people in their community. But sometimes they can’t get those ideas off the ground simply due to a lack of funds.

Helping you share Jesus with children not in church

We’re delighted that so many supporters have donated to our new Good News Fund. It means we can offer grants of up to £3,000 to help great missional ideas see the light of day. So far, we’ve given out £48,000 in grants to help launch 18 new initiatives including prayer spaces in schools, a surfing and skateboarding ministry, and even a mobile mission that uses a converted bus.

Make your mission idea a reality

Have you got a great idea for reaching the children and young people in your neighbourhood? If you have, then applying to the Good News Fund is easy! Your church or group needs to be based in England or Wales, willing to partner with Scripture Union, and have one or more of its members signed up to The 95 Campaign.
