SIX Christian charities were honoured at Lambeth Palace on Thursday of last week at the third annual Christian Funders’ Forum Awards.

The forum, a group of 24 Christian grant-making trusts that give about £30 million to Christian programmes each year, made awards to projects that had been given funding in the past 12 months.

The best project for “advancing the Christian faith” was Wolverhampton Pioneer ministries, a Fresh Expression of church for young adults in Wolverhampton city centre. The best church building project went to St James and St Basil, Fenham, in Newcastle, for building a new kitchen and servery, with a new boiler and a refurbished church hall.

The best replicable project was Peaced Together, which helps churches use arts and craft to bring hope to vulnerable and depressed women. The best international-development project was Hope Enterprises Addis Ababa, which runs schools, feeding schemes, vocational training, and adult literacy for children and adults living on the streets in the capital of Ethiopia.

The award for best social-action project was given to the Joel Community Trust, a night shelter for the homeless run by St Peter’s, Norbiton. Best innovative youth project was Bardsley Youth Project, in Coventry city centre.
