Cinnamon Project Incubation – Netherlands

Cinnamon Network is currently looking for church-based social action projects in the Netherlands that have a desire to replicate their project through other churches.

Here at Cinnamon, we believe the local church has the power to transform nations. With this in mind, Cinnamon helps local churches to serve their communities by supporting those in greatest need. 

A key way that Cinnamon does this is by seeking out pioneering projects that meet some of society’s most challenging needs and supporting their development so they can be easily run by other churches.

Cinnamon currently promotes and supports more than 30 projects (Cinnamon Recognised Projects). They include projects such as Street Pastors, Christians Against Poverty and MakeLunch. To date, more than 3,000 churches in the UK and Ireland have replicated these initiatives and have impacted countless lives, as a result.

As we seek to share this successful approach with other nations, we are looking to invest in emerging church-based social action projects in the Netherlands. We are specifically looking for projects that have the potential to be replicated through multiple churches. 

Social action projects with a passion to share their work are invited to apply for a place on the Cinnamon Project Incubator. The two-year programme gives projects access to development support that would cost them around £10,000 in the commercial sector.

The Project Incubator offers multiple benefits, including:

  • Two residential training courses in the UK delivered by world class professionals. All the presenters have a track record of taking single location projects and helping them grow through numerous churches.
  • Bi-monthly coaching from experts who can help initiatives develop their operational and marketing functions and local network.
  • Peer support from other social action projects focused on expanding their reach and influence.

Successful applicants will receive a fully-funded place on the Project Incubator.  All they have to pay for is travel costs to and from the training venue in the UK.
