                          The Church of England’s Youth Evangelism
                                  Fund: aims and criteria.
Aims
The Fund affirms projects and proposals that share the Good
News of Jesus Christ in ways that make sense to young people.


Projects and proposals should:

• be creative, prayerful and culturally appropriate for young people.
• be planned and developed by young people themselves.
• demonstrate the love and justice of God practically.
• have a “local” focus -towards young people in a specific community,
area, or network.
• start something new (or build on what already exists in a new way).
• build on partnership and co-operation between different churches and
organisations.
• form part of a wider strategy for the Church’s mission in an area or
community.
• have been well-researched, and draw on examples of good practice.

Projects and proposals should enable young people to :

• encounter the Gospel at their own pace and in their own way.
• come to participate more fully in the life of the Church, either within the
existing Christian community or through a fresh expression of church.

Criteria for applications

Applications should :

• be made by young people, and developed with their active contribution and
involvement.
• have clear aims and objectives, and be able to explain why this project is being
suggested, what it hopes to achieve, and how.
• learn from recognised good practice. (New and radical ideas for youth evangelism
will be welcome, but these will need to be carefully thought through.)
• involve careful and appropriate consultation – for example with local church leaders,
diocesan specialists (particularly youth and mission/evangelism officers), and
relevant authorities (such as schools, colleges, local authorities).
• be aimed at the 11 to 20 age group.
• be clear how the proposal fits into the mission strategy of the Church locally.
• fit into an overall pattern of work with young people, and show how young people
who make a Christian commitment will be able to nurture and develop their faith.
• be undergirded by a sound understanding of equal opportunity issues.
• reflect and incorporate good child protection procedures.

                           youth@carlislediocese.org.uk www.ablaze.org.uk
Priority will be given to :

• evangelism in areas where the Church is weakest in its outreach to young people (for
example in deeply rural or inner urban areas, or in small and struggling churches,
or among those marginalised within society).
• projects that seek to engage with distinctive youth cultures and groupings.
• specific, time-limited projects, or provision of “seed” money to help a project get
started.
• projects which involve a partnership with local churches, communities or Christian
organisations.

Successful applicants will:

• normally receive only part of the total cost of the venture, depending on the
circumstances of the project and its needs.
• be expected to share their insights and experiences with other groups and churches,
so that lessons and good practice can be shared.
• take particular care when relating to people from non-Christian faith traditions.
• ensure that evangelism is not manipulative or aggressive, and at all times respect the
freedom and integrity of young people.
encourage the development of local creative prayer support.

Youth Evangelism Fund: Application process.
1. The young people are given a copy of the publicity and the aims of the Fund are
explained to them by diocesan or local leaders.
2. If they wish to make an application they are given the following questions:
What do you want to do?
Why do you want to do it?
How much money do you need altogether, and what will you spend it on?
How much of this do you want as a grant from the Youth Evangelism Fund?
How will you know that your plans have worked?
3. Applicants will also be invited, if they wish, to offer additional material, whether
written or audio-visual, in support of the application; but the postcard-sized
questions constitute the application form in its entirety.
4. Applications will be filtered first by local diocesan staff (who will also tell us
whether their projects have applied for or received funding from other sources) and
forwarded to Church House.
5. If information is particularly thin an application may then be passed to a member
of an “advocacy team”.
6. The application’s advocate can then telephone, text or email the young applicants
and find out the “feel” of the project from them. All advocates will be CRB cleared
and diocesan offices will have told applicants that they may be receiving calls, and
who might be calling.
7. At the meeting of the grants group the mini-application form, together with any
additional material from the group and the advocate’s report, will form the
information on the basis of which a decision will be made.
8. After a project is over, in the light of the last of the questions (How will you know
that your plans have worked?), the young people will submit a report in whatever
medium they choose.
