Together Liverpool are delighted to offer Feast of Fun grants of up to £500 for churches across the Diocese of Liverpool to host food-related community activities for families, children and young people in summer and autumn 2021.

We are looking to support activities which are:

  • Church-led, we encourage you to involve other community partners, such as local schools, faith groups, voluntary organisations or other churches
  • Enable your church to strengthen connections with families, children and/or young people in your community, beyond your usual church family
  • Include healthy food as a key element of your activity

Activities can take place over one day or multiple days, and we will be looking to support a range of activities across the diocese. We will prioritise funding new activities, which churches haven’t run before, activities that reflect good value for money and applications that work in partnership with others, including partnering with a Church of England church within the Diocese of Liverpool - other churches operating within the Diocese of Liverpool area are very welcome to apply.

All Feast of Fun activities should be open and welcoming for people from different backgrounds, ethnicities, and faiths in your community.

To apply for a grant please fill out this application form. Closing date for applications is Wednesday 19th May 2021. Grants for one-day activities capped at £150 and week-long events at £500.

Please check out our Feast of Fun resources - including our healthy Recipe Cards with ideas for foods to make with children, and a Superhero Holiday Resource Pack with ideas for churches.

Find out how 24 recipients of our Feast of Fun grants used the funding to reach 3,460 people including 2,164 children during lockdown in February by downloading our Impact Report.
