Transforming the communities of Essex & East London through Christ’s presence

Chelmsford Diocese is committed to responding to God’s mission to Essex and East London. We aspire to be a transforming presence in every community. We seek to meet the challenge of living the Good News among and for all the people whom we serve.

Unit Development Fund

The Fund is now prioritised toward helping units and prospective units work together on the activity or project that would most help with the formation of the new Unit, either in terms of taking forward a Mission Priority Area or getting a new Mission & Ministry Unit working effectively. The guidance note below gives some examples of what sorts of applications could be made. 

This funding is being split into two rounds in 2018:

January 2018 award round: application deadline 1 December 2017
June 2018 award round: application deadline 1 June 2018

The relevant documents are:

Non UDF applications 

Where the unit is still in the early stages of development it is possible for single parish applications to be submitted using the non-UDF application form. 

For non-UDF applications please ensure these are submitted by 1 October 2017 and 1 May 2018
