For 2025 we will not be accepting any new applications for grants that cannot evidence the development of a “financial engine” that over a few years will begin to generate income for the applicant meaning reliance on a grant is reduced year on year.
Grants are available to support pioneers and any EBA member church that meets these criteria. They are usually considered once a year following the timetable below, however if you find yourself struggling outside of this timetable, please speak to your regional minister sooner rather than later.
Applications are made for a grant for the following year, for example if applying in 2024, the grant will be for 2025. Further information can be obtained from your regional minister or EBA Secretary.
