General Synod’s Marks of Mission team is offering grants of $1,000 to every diocese in the Anglican Church of Canada as seed money for projects that implement any of the the Anglican Communion’s five marks of mission.

Each diocese needs only to select a project and send a 100-word description of it to the team at the church’s national offices in Toronto in order to receive a Diocesan Champion Project grant. “It could be artistic, it could be practical, it could be giving to the community. The Marks of Mission are pretty broad,” said Anglican Video senior producer Lisa Barry, who has also worked with the team on projects such as the “Amazing Grace” video project that raised funds for the Council of the North.

Canadian Anglicans are living out the Marks of Missions in a myriad of creative ways, said Barry. The Champion project is intended not only to support those efforts financially but to help share their stories with other Anglicans across the country.

Descriptions of the projects will be posted on the national church’s website, “We’re hoping that it seeds the imagination and inspires others to also do projects,” Barry said.
