Even more capacity building case studies

St Martin-in-the-Fields received a grant from the Archbishops Council's 'Strategic Development Funding' to support the development of HeartEdge. The award is enabling HeartEdge to develop and resource its growing network of member churches. The funding is for resources being developed for each of the 4 Cs (compassion, culture, commerce and congregation). These will be used by member churches to develop their mission. A team of experienced practitioners will also be appointed to work with churches to develop and build dynamic, relevant activity related to the 4 Cs.
