Resourcing Parish Mission

The diocese has wanted to preserve the vital principle of supporting local church initiatives that was established by the Bishop's Growth Fund and so has merged the Growth Fund with Parish Projects Loans and Grants (PPLG) to create Resourcing Parish Mission (RPM). This grant-making body currently has an interim chair in Archdeacon Matthew of Stoke. The full terms of reference are available here

(You may also like to consider the smaller 'Enrich' stream, specifically for Discipleship and Evangelism applications.)

RPM is available to give grants for:

  • Equipment e.g. data projector, notice boards (advice from us here), AV upgrades (advice here), etc.
  • Small projects e.g. start-up funding for a new congregation, outreach activities and missions, training of childrens leaders, community activities, holiday clubs, lunch clubs, church weekends, etc.

The necessary application forms follow below.  

All application forms are to be sent to the Administrator Richard Barrett; email or 01543 622592, or his office address at Unit 1, Three Spires House, Station Road, Lichfield. WS13 6HX

Our remaining 2020 meeting date is set for Tuesday 4th December. Our next deadline falls at Midnight on Sunday 5th January.

For more details of required outcomes see here

The grant-making body of RPM will also oversee Parish Loans and Grants for other work. Please contact Fiona North (email) in the first instance or go to the Parish Resources page here
