150 years of making it count

07 February 2022

As part of celebrating 150 years of protecting and supporting churches and communities we’ll be awarding* 15 church and community initiatives a £1,500 donation.

Your church. Your initiative. Your chance to win to receive £1,500.

How would you make £1,500 count?

We want to support the ideas and initiatives that could really make a difference to your church and community. 
 
  • Is your church in need of funds for improvements or restoration?
  • Does a member of the community need mobility aid?
  • Do you need new technology to help the community stay connected? 
  • Or does your church want to try something completely new? 
We are inviting Methodist places of worship to tell us just how they’d make £1,500 count. Our favourite 15 ideas will each receive £1,500 towards bringing that idea to life1.

How to enter

 
It’s simple, capture your initiative in 300 words (supported by pictures if you’d like) and send it to us via one of our easy methods of application.
 
  • Using the online form 
  • Or, download an application form -post it free of charge to ‘FREEPOST METHODIST’ or email 150awards@micmail.com
 
One entry per place of worship and the applicant must have the agreement of the church to make the application. Applicants must also ensure that any copyright and permissions (to quote others, name others, and include someone in photographs) has been agreed. The submitted initiative must be the eventual beneficiary of the donation.
 
The 15 award winners will be chosen by a panel of judges, based on how the initiative will improve the community it serves, how lasting its impact may be, and how inspirational the idea.
