Funding for Young People to develop Christian Faith and Discipleship.

Methodist Youth Activities (MYA), which is independent of the Connexional Grants Cttee, is now the only funding body within Methodism whose area of benefit is young people. The trustees would welcome more applications.

The fund developed from the evangelical youth camp movement of the 1950’s and 60’s. When the permanent site and its staff were being less used and becoming uneconomic, the resources were sold to form the fund.

Since 1995 the trustees have used the income to give grants to individual young people who are planning an activity that will further and deepen their Christian faith and experience, and also to Christian projects offering young people activities aimed at deepening their Christian faith and experience.

The trustees would welcome more applications. More information can be found on the fund's website www.myaltd.org.uk.
