Decisions on funding are taken by the Mission Partnership Funding Committee. www.londonbaptist.org.uk/about-us/organisation/committees¬†The over-riding criterion in assessing all funding requests is whether the funding will enable effective mission to take place which would not happen without the funding. Decisions on what can be funded are limited by the available Mission Budget. They will also take into account the ‚Äúneed‚ÄĚ for the funding to enable the mission activity to go ahead.
Colin Hicks is the LBA Mission Partnership Funding Administrator and is the first point of contact for anyone interested in knowing more. Workshops¬†were held on 24th January¬†and¬†11th February 2017 to explain the application process in more detail.
This scheme is funded using money given on a voluntary basis by member churches to the Baptist Union. This giving, known as Home Mission funding, is used to support mission across the UK. It is used in churches and through the work of the Baptist Union and the Associations as they advise and support the churches in their mission.
