The Mission Support Fund is the central mission fund of the Uniting Church in Australia, Synod of Victoria and Tasmania.
From it grants are made for ministry education, ecumenical activities, cross-cultural ministry, advocacy activities, congregational support and governance and administration — to name just some of the supported areas.

To make an application, please contact Natalie Brown at the Synod office for a Board of Mission and Resourcing Proposal Form by phoning 9251 5420.
