    If your church is working on community outreach projects in 2018, you may be eligible to receive support from the Wiltshire Community Foundation’s Main Grants (up to £15k over 3 years: deadline 22 Feb 2018) or Small Grants (up to £4k over 2 years: deadline 1 Feb 2018).

    While the website states that the funding can’t be specifically for ‘the advancement of religion’, the trust is open to supporting church activities that benefit local communities and the trust managers are warm to Christian work.

    If you’d like more support in applying for grant funding:

    • The Wiltshire Community Foundation is running a ‘Writing Better Applications’ workshop on the morning of 17 January at its Devizes offices.
    • You can access a new Wiltshire and Swindon funding database free of charge here

    • Or contact Clare Fussell, Giving and Resources Adviser, to discuss your project: clare.fussell@bristoldiocese.org or call 0117 9060100
