The Barnabas Fund
The Barnabas Fund of the Episcopal Church in Delaware aids community outreach programs beyond the wall of a church by providing physical fixtures that help make Christ’s presence more visible in the world.
In 2016, the Trustees of the Diocese announced the recipient of the first grant from the Barnabas Fund. Following in the traditions set by St. Albans Parish, the grant was made to the Lake Forest Church Association, Inc. The Association was brought to the attention of the Committee through a parishioner at St. Stephen’s Parish in Harrington.
Since then grants have been made to the Cathedral Choir School of Delaware for a computer charging stand, to the Seamen’s Center at the Port of Wilmington for structures to shield sailors from the weather, to Love Inc, for a new refrigerator, and to Memorial House for a bicycle maintenance stand. There are many creative ways to express ministry to God’s people.
For information on applying for a grant please contact Canon Judith Gregory at 302.256.0374, Ext 108.
