Up to $300 grants available to CPN members! We are delighted to be able to provide a little extra assistance to help your playgroup reset in 2021 through the ‘Christian Playgroup Network Next Step Grants’.

Overview
The Christian Playgroup Network is committed to supporting Christian Playgroups to be flourishing expressions of God’s kingdom in their local communities.
This year, as we seek to come alongside and nurture our CPN member churches, we are aware that financial support might be needed for playgroups to take the next step in offering love and grace, nurturing or sharing faith and experiencing fullness of life.
Therefore we are opening the Next Step Grant Project to our CPN members. Playgroups that are members of Christian Playgroup Network can apply for grants of up to $300.  Playgroups can apply for funding for the whole or part of a project.

What can I use my Next Step Grant for?
CPN’s vision is to support playgroups to nurture love and grace, share faith, and experience fullness of life. Playgroups should consider how their application can align with one or more of these statements.

Some ideas you might like to consider include:
– to help in making your playgroup space be a welcoming one for all and generous in hospitality eg a nice set of mugs for cuppas, cushions to create a quiet space, some new equipment or furniture
– to cover the cost of Participant Manual’s & Facilitator DVD’s to allow families to participate in Parenting, Alpha, Marriage or other helpful courses
– to purchase some Christian books for your parents or children
– a family event for your young families eg hiring of a jumping castle or a Mobile Animal Farm
