Securing funding for energy efficiency and generation measures can be difficult, but the Benefact Trust are keen to receive applications from Methodist groups focussed on net zero and climate change. Click here to view their grants page.
There is a specific ‘Methodist Grants’ stream which is intended to fund missional projects, and this includes projects focussed on climate change. Caring for God’s Creation and taking steps to address the injustices of the climate crisis are key missional priorities for the Methodist Church, so are absolutely included within this grant stream.
Before applying for a grant it is helpful to understand to assess your building and energy usage, and the Property Team have resources on the Assess Your Building & Energy Usage page to help you do this.
