Roanridge and Constable Grants

Applications are open for two grant opportunities offered annually by The Episcopal Church

  • Constable Fund grants, which focus on religious education
  • Roanridge Trust grants, which support leadership development in small towns and rural communities

The application deadline for both is November 18, 2022. Application requirements and an application form can be found online at

Constable Fund grants now available.

Constable Fund

Constable Fund grants support mission initiatives outside The Episcopal Church budget, with a stated preference for religious education work. The grants are named for visionary philanthropist Marie Louise Constable, who established the fund through a gift made to The Episcopal Church in 1935.

The Roanridge Trust grants now available.

Roanridge Trust

The Roanridge Trust was established by the Cochel family, who gave a working farm in Missouri called Roanridge to The Episcopal Church. The grant funds support creative models of leadership development and training for laity and clergy in small towns and rural communities across the church.

In April 2022, the Episcopal Church Executive Council approved the awarding of five Constable Fund grants and 11 Roanridge Trust grants—totaling over $460,000. For more information about either grant, contact the Rev. Molly James, deputy executive officer of the General Convention.

Sermons That Work from the Episcopal Church

Sermons That Work

For more than 20 years, Sermons That Work, a ministry of The Episcopal Church’s Office of Communication, has provided free sermons, Bible studies, bulletin inserts, and other resources that speak to congregations across the Church. Our writers and readers come from numerous and varied backgrounds, and the resources we provide are used in small house churches, sprawling cathedrals, and everything between.

The Episcopal Church of the Redeemer: Worshiping God, living in community, reaching out to the world.

Church of the Redeemer

Church of the Redeemer: Worshiping God, living in community, and reaching out to the world around us. We are an Episcopal Church serving north King County and south Snohomish County, Washington. As you travel your road, go with friends walking the way of Jesus at Redeemer.

Church of the Redeemer is at 6210 Northeast 181st Street in Kenmore, Washington. The campus is a short distance north of Bothell Way, near the Burke-Gilman Trail. The entrance looks like a gravel driveway. The campus is larger on the inside than it is on the outside. And we managed to hide a large building on the side of a hill that is not easily seen from the street.

The Episcopal Church welcomes you.
