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 100 local mission initiatives with recent awards ranging from £500 to £24,000.

New projects included Wareham Team Ministries ‘Not Just Sundaes’ project, The Lantern ‘Play it by Ear’ project, a prayer room at Queen Elizabeth School Wimborne and the ‘Life Exhibition’ in the Pewsey Deanery.
