Capital Fund

The Capital Fund is now paused until further notice and the June meeting is cancelled. Please direct any enquiries to Andy Brockbank on

The purpose of the Capital Fund is to help Churches and Fresh Expressions of Church who are seeking to undertake building development projects as part of responding to the Three Key Questions as set out in the leaflet ‘Our Vision, Purpose & Three Key Questions’.  So we look for growth in three dimensions, in the numbers of those coming to and returning to faith, in deepening faith, and faith leading to service of the world.

The fund is available for churches within the Diocese of Leicester.  If you wish to know more, please read the Guidance notes here before completing an application form.

Here are some examples of projects within the diocese that might give you some ideas about initiatives with which the Capital Fund might help
