The object of the LCA Special Ministry Fund is to provide grants for specific ministry projects within the LCA which are consistent with the church’s strategic direction and normally could not be undertaken with funds from the LCA or and LCA district. Applications are accepted year-round. The successful grant applicants for 2015/16 are in the table on this page.
Applicants need to demonstrate how the proposed project is consistent with the overall priorities of the LCA, supports the objectives of the applicant’s ministry and will benefit the ministry and mission of the wider church beyond local congregation or parish boundaries.
Grants provided will be for a specific purpose and will not be made for projects which are of an ongoing nature. In addition, grants will not generally be approved if the applicant has previously received funding through the Special Ministry Fund for a similar project. Proposed projects should be innovative so that the wider church can learn and benefit from the outcomes.
Application forms can be found on the LCA website.
