Disestablishment 150

Young Leaders in Ministry Fund 2021

Next closing date: Monday, 25th January 2021

To celebrate the 150th anniversary of Disestablishment and to support Church of Ireland ministry in the future, the Church of Ireland Youth Department (CIYD) has created a bursary fund to significantly encourage the number of young people undertaking mission and training experiences that would benefit ministry in the Church of Ireland.

This fund provides individual young people with small, but significant, bursaries to enable them to apply for teams, training, and placements that might otherwise have been financially challenging.  This is an Ireland–wide project that we hope will support many young people over a period of three years.

CIYD is pleased to announce that we will be accepting applications to our popular funding scheme for young leaders for 2021.  The closing date for the first applicants will be Monday, 25th January 2021.  We understand that it may be difficult for anyone to plan ahead very far at this time in terms of team opportunities, internships and courses etc. but please do remember that the Young Leaders Fund exists to support Church of Ireland young people and to grow their faith development and skills. For any further enquiries, please email simon@ciyd.org

Please post to Young Leaders in Ministry Fund, CIYD, Church of Ireland House, 61–67 Donegall Street, Belfast, Northern Ireland, BT1 2QH or email to: admin@ciyd.org

If your application is successful, CIYD will be in contact with you regarding bank transfer procedures to your organisation.
