SEBA have established this fund to support churches through one-off grants of up to £3,000 to support new projects or ongoing ministry.
to enable churches to deliver mission-focussed projects in response to the needs of their local community as part of their ongoing work and ministry.
to help a church or congregation meet one-off costs associated with their ongoing work and ministry.
These grants are not to cover stipend or salary costs – but all other requests will be considered. Repeat applications from an individual church will not normally be considered within three years.
This is a limited fund and grants will only be made when sufficient funds are available. Whilst these are grants and there is no expectation for churches to repay them, our hope is that when those churches who have benefited are able to make a donation to SEBA to benefit other churches in need they will do so, and we will use that gift to replenish this fund. We would welcome donations to this fund from any church to support our Baptist family across the South East.
Examples of projects we have been able to provide funds for have included
