Mackie Fisher - Church Funding Specialist

Mackie Fisher

My ambition is to equip your church to serve your congregation and community. My heart is to provide training and resources to help you get the funding you need to keep your church activities running, and to help you launch projects to reach your community with the Gospel and social change.

So far, we have equipped our local church partners to raise over £2.8 million, and we want to keep growing from there. Our team is behind you as a church, and we want to help you as you grow to serve your community.

You may know that I have two roles here at CAP. My other role is as a Project Information Officer, which entails applications for funding, creating various funding content, researching different funding opportunities, and breaking down information to help create products we can take to funders. I’m excited to bring these skills to the table as I work with you and your church.

I look forward to working with you.

Documents and resources

We have written some really helpful resources for you. Along with a guide to funding your centre, we also have some helpful walkthroughs. You will also find links to our most recent reports and research.
