Resourcing the Future

Funding mission and growth

The Church Commissioners provide money which the Archbishops’ Council distributes to dioceses in line with the Church’s goal of mission and growth. The Archbishops’ Council and the House of Bishops have agreed to invest this in the spiritual and numerical growth of the Church as part of Renewal and Reform.

More details on the funding and the work it supports can be found in the Strategic Investment Board's annual reports.
In the winter of 2021/22 the SIB commissioned an independent review of Lowest Income Communities Funding and Strategic Development Funding, chaired by Sir Robert Chote. The review published its findings in March 2022 and the full report is available below. The SIB welcomes its findings and is considering how best to implement them to help the mission of the Church.
