Funding for Sudan: we have pledged to the Church in Sudan to provide as minimum over three years 2019-2021 a grant of £15,000 to each Diocese in Sudan, £3,000 per year to SBTI and £2,000 per year for relief work. We are exceeding our pledge at the moment. We ask for project proposals describing how the funding we give will be used. We try to support the priorities of the Church in Sudan and not impose our priorities.
