Home Mission is all about helping Baptist churches and individuals to reach their mission potential and bring the love of God to their communities.
The money raised aims to help Baptist churches and individuals to reach their mission potential and bring the love of God to their communities. It is used to fund:
Grants to local churches: These grants include church planting, renewing local churches and mission project grants. Through Home Mission, hundreds of lives have been affected and many have found faith in Jesus. To find out about grants available to your church, please contact the Regional Team.
The Northern Baptist Association Team, who are engaged in missional development in our area, supporting new initiatives and churches and supporting the on-going work of churches and their ministers and families.
Three specialist teams based at Baptists Together (Baptist Union of Great Britain) to resource churches in their work through legal, ministries and finance support. In addition, these teams represent the mission of God in national ways such as engaging with Government and speaking out on matters of faith.
There are a number of ways you can give to Home Mission.
We appreciate the support from our churches and the donations you give.
Your support is vital and positively impacts those who receive your help.
Donate via your church: Many of our Association Churches have Home Mission Representatives who give updated stories of those who've received grants and organise fundraising events to raise money for Home Mission. Churches also give to Home Mission regularly. You can ask your local church how to donate through them.
Direct to the Association: contact the office for information on how to do this
We would prefer for you to pay any Home Mission Donations via BACs Transfer, please contact the office to find out how to do this

Leave a Legacy: Generous giving has released pioneering mission, enabled churches to afford dedicated leadership, funded mission engagement on the margins through chaplaincy and also provided invaluable support and guidance from the Regional and Specialist Teams.
The vast majority of our funding comes through the faithful giving of people who share our vision for growing healthy churches in relationship for God’s mission. Your giving makes a real difference. By leaving a gift in your will you can give something that will be a lasting legacy for the Kingdom: to find out more please click here.
Home Mission Grants
We love giving grants for mission! Mission is the heartbeat of the church.
All grant applications are carefully considered and are decided based on set criteria regarding the missional and practical outworking of the project.
The Association awards these grants, therefore it is advisable that anyone hoping to apply has an early consultation with the association.
For more information about Home Mission Grants or to discuss your mission and funding contact Revd Paul Revill
The deadline for grant applications is in May every year, applications are considered by a wider team.
