The District Advance Fund is a resource to support growth and development of churches and circuits within the district as they seek to engage effectively in God’s mission.

The district is committed to encouraging and enabling circuits, churches and district projects to grasp mission opportunities by supporting them with grant aid where it is appropriate and possible.

The district advance fund is intended primarily for development rather than maintenance and is an example of the Methodist principle of connexionalism at work, whereby resources are shared in order to help and support imaginative mission focussed projects.

Applications can be submitted to the District Grants Committee using the details contained in the policy document.
