We want to help and support those on the front line through funding support, developing a supportive network of Christians, prayer support and practical help around project development. We’ll be adding links to helpful resources, websites and funding sources. So watch this space.

Applications are received based on the four key strands of the LIFE vision. The Stewards are keen to support projects which are innovative and collaborative.  Applicants are, therefore, encouraged to research what others are doing locally, regionally and nationally, and to explore the potential for partnering with other churches or community groups, before submitting an application.

Cinnamon Network

The Cinnamon Network knows that a small amount of money can go a long way in helping a local church start a new community project. Thanks to partnership with Governments, Police Forces, Businesses, Foundations and philanthropists they are delighted to be able to offer Cinnamon Micro-Grants to any local church that wants to start one of our Cinnamon Recognised Projects.
