Has your church got an idea for a social action project?

Cinnamon Network is looking for great Jesus–centred and local church–centred social action projects from across Ireland (North & South). 

Five selected projects will receive support with business planning, training, and coaching and will be eligible for a 2–year support grant of up to £30,000 to help the project replicate and become deliverable by churches across Ireland and beyond.

Projects are sought that either:

  • Address issues identified by the Cinnamon Network Ireland Advisory Council. These include: local church responses to mental health, reconciliation, rural isolation, safer communities and substance dependency. Or;
  • Address other clearly identifiable areas of social need.

About Cinnamon Network

Cinnamon Network began emerging in 2010 in response to growing social need, public sector reform, increasing recognition of the role of voluntary organisations and the economic cuts. 50 Christian CEOs and leaders were challenged to consider how the Christian community could deliver more local transformation at national scale and to do so at speed. They met together at The Cinnamon Club in London and Cinnamon Network was born.

The organisation began life as a voluntary network, then formed a partnership with Tearfund and in 2014 became a registered charity (1156985) with its own governance.
