Mission Opportunities Fund

The mission opportunities fund (MOF) allows Parishes, clusters or Deaneries to apply for grants, up to a maximum of £5,000 in any one year; which will be allocated in accordance with clear criteria (explained in the application document)

This funding is primarily aimed at enabling new work with a mission and growth focus and will give priority to such applications. However, applications for mission/outreach initiatives that expand current successful work will also be considered.

In order to maintain the focus of the MOF, grants will not be awarded for any capital building costs, including kitchens and other such fitted equipment or for any staff costs.

  • The next deadline for applications (for consideration in May 2020) is Thursday 30th April, 2020.
  • Completed forms should be returned by email to Andrew Hargreaves, andrew.hargreaves@portsmouth.anglican.org.
