We are sad to announce the departure of our Grant and Business Relations Manager, Grant, who joined Brighton and Hove City Mission (BHCM) in April 2019. We have loved having him as part of our Head Office team, helping promote all that we do serving our city of Brighton and Hove.
Grant is a wonderful team player, with incredible determination to plough through the many funding applications that are required to be completed to bring in the necessary funds to continue our work in schools, rest homes, and with those in crisis. He applied to over 180 grant-making bodies and has helped raise over £90k for BHCM.
During December 2019, Grant felt called by God to move away from administrative missional work into community missional work and, with his wife, is starting a new chapter. He is moving up north to a place just outside of Bolton to join, the well-known, Message Project as part of one of the Eden teams.
Sadly, because we finished 2019 with a large deficit, we will not be replacing the role of Grant and Business Relations Manager. We will be sharing the responsibility between our current Office Manager, supported by the teams and a group of wonderful volunteers.
We want to wish Grant and his family all the best in the future and pray God will bless them in their new venture. We will miss having him in the south, in Brighton.
