Young Leaders in Ministry Fund open again for applications

Our next round of applications for CIYD’s Young Leaders In Ministry Fund is now open and the closing date for this is Friday, 26th January 2024. If you’re interested, please get in contact with us at and we can send you the form to apply.

The fund is open to young people aged between 15 and 25 years who can demonstrate a current involvement in the Church of Ireland.

It seeks to support training and development courses, mission teams, leadership opportunities, and placements that can be shown to:

  1. significantly develop the faith of the young adult applicant;
  1. grow the skills of the applicant especially, but not confined to, leadership skills; and
  1. be of significant use to the ministry of the Church of Ireland in the 12 months following the completion of the opportunity.

Encouraging applications, National Youth Officer Simon Henry says, “As we start 2024, CIYD wants to encourage young people and their leaders to engage with the broad range of opportunities out there – whether that’s serving God abroad or locally on a summer team, a starter qualification in youth ministry, or an internship programme – and to realise this Fund exists for them, to support and develop their faith and skills as they seek to serve Jesus.”

If you’re interested, we would love to hear from you.
