Thy Kingdom Come
Thy Kingdom Come gives us an exciting opportunity to join with others across the world in prayer and to ask God to be at work in the lives of people who don’t yet know Him. Excitingly this year, there are brand new digital activities designed to engage children using interactive and immersive technology that is easily accessed through a smartphone. These activities will use this generation’s love of digital gaming by using Augmented Reality as a tool to help them to grow in their faith in Jesus.

UPDATE: During the Covid 19 schools shutdown, the Kellogg’s Breakfast Club Programme will prioritise schools who remain open to vulnerable children and the families of key workers. Please complete the form as usual and in the section ‘Tell us about your breakfast club’ please just give a brief overview of who you are supporting and what breakfast provision you want to make.
OPEN FOR APPLICATIONS
Kellogg’s has teamed up with Forever Manchester to award grants of £1,000 to school Breakfast Clubs, to help them provide breakfast to those children who need it most.
You can apply for an award at any date and you will hear within one month if you have been successful. Please note the fund may close if oversubscribed.
Please read the following before beginning your application:
- Your breakfast club must be based in a school in England, Wales, Scotland or Northern Ireland.
- A limited number of grants are available so priority will be given to schools that have either:
35% and above of children eligible for pupil premium funding or eligible for free school meals.
Schools that are based in an area which is classified as falling in the 10% of most deprived areas according to the Index of Multiple Deprivation. You can find out if this applies to your school by following the instructions which you can find here
- Additionally, if your school has received breakfast club funding from Gregg’s or Magic Breakfast within the current academic year, your club will not be considered a priority for support.
- Only one grant per school in each academic year is available.
By applying to the Kellogg’s Breakfast Club Grants Programme you are agreeing to allow Forever Manchester and Kellogg’s to use your school’s details for publicity purposes. You are also agreeing that all details provided are accurate at the time of submitting your application.
All schools that apply to the Kellogg’s Breakfast Club Grants Programme will be automatically signed up to the Kellogg’s Breakfast Club Network. Through the Breakfast Club Network, Kellogg’s will contact you with offers and information to help your Breakfast Club.
