Innovation Fund

The deadline for submissions for the second tranche of the Diocesan Innovation Fund will be 15 September 2018 rather than 30 July 2018 as previously announced.  The expectation is that successful applications will be announced by 30 September.  The Innovation Fund has been established to provide grants to parishes and deaneries to explore courageously new and innovative ways of being church in support of the vision and priorities of Embracing God’s Future.  The Fund seeks to support innovative and forward-thinking projects that will not only benefit the immediate project participants but also serve as a seed for the whole diocese.  Grants may be made for up to $10,000 a year for a maximum of two years.
