'PASS IT ON'

An opportunity to bid for financial help in establishing a local 'PASS IT ON' Project...

The Provincial Board is taking the opportunity of the "PASS IT ON" theme of the Renewal Committee to offer to congregations the opportunity to bid for grant aid to enable participation in a "PASS IT ON Project". This scheme sets out to encourage congregations to be more outward looking in local mission; grants will be given for well thought out and properly reasoned outreach programs.

This will be "£ for £" matched funding, for a congregation project costed in the region of £500 - £4000.  That is, a congregation will be required to find at least £250, and the province will match such amount to a maximum grant of £1,000.

The sort of project we have in mind would be such as the recent Lower Wyke "Jesus video" scheme, linked with an Alpha course; or perhaps participation in employing an ecumenical youth outreach worker for a local Churches Together group; or the setting up a drop in facility or luncheon club for the wider community. Many possible examples will come to mind. The Renewal Committee is willing to advise and offer suggestions and ideas to any congregations willing to make a commitment. The Committee can be contacted through Br Paul Greenhough. They are also preparing "An Outreach Resource Folder" which will be distributed to congregations.

Congregations should not apply "on a whim", but with a properly argued and costed proposal. And such would be for new work. Each congregation may make one application in this present inter-Synodal period.

No forms; if the minister and Church Committee are interested, just write in to the Provincial Treasurer with a full proposal and budget for consideration by the Provincial Board.
