Christian Union Mission Fund
Giving thanks to God for his faithful and abundant provision in Cambridge, we desire to support evangelistic efforts of University and College Christian Unions elsewhere in Great Britain. The CU Missions Fund exists to receive funds from CICCU and other Christian Unions in order to support financially other UCCF University and College Christian Unions in their evangelism to students.
Any UCCF CU within Great Britain may apply to the CICCU CU Missions Fund, for funding towards evangelistic events organised by the CU, aimed at reaching students within their university. Funds shall be distributed in order to help to fund evangelistic events in which the verbal proclamation of the Gospel is central to the relevant mission or events. This might include one or more of the following:
- A gospel talk or talks based on the bible
- Apologetic style talks or lunch bars
- Distribution of bibles, portions of the bible, or gospel tracts
- Biblically-based enquirers groups
Priority in the distribution of money shall be given to UCCF Christian Unions that cannot afford to hold evangelistic events or missions without external financial support. In seeking to raise funds for an event, CUs should demonstrate a commitment to sacrificial giving and careful stewardship of the resources available to them. Priority in the distribution of money shall be given to CUs seeking to take these responsibilities seriously. The CICCU Executive Committee retain the distribution rights of the money irrespective of its source (e.g. other CUs).
Funding is available for any amount up to £500 per term, per CU. Sums above £500 will be considered in extraordinary circumstances. Speakers must sign the UCCF Doctrinal Basis, and after the event we would require a basic breakdown of how funding was spent.
Applying for funding is simple; only one application form need be completed. However, processing applications may take time, so applications should be made at least one month before the money would be needed. You can download an application form, or else email the treasurer, Keira Hamilton, to discuss things some more.
