The emphasis is on supporting projects in new areas of work and providing some of the resources needed to try different types of mission in our parishes. It is not intended to be used for building projects, administrative or parish youth worker posts. Our main funding portal is here.

Since 2006, the Aldhelm Mission Fund has supported over 90 local mission initiatives with recent awards ranging from £500 to £24,000.

New projects included the Poole Missional Communities ‘Space for Life’ project, the Winterbourne Whitechurch Festival of the Sea and the Hazelbury Bryan and Hillside Parishes Sunday Family Breakfast project.
