Stewardship - resources for your mission
These days, people need to understand more about giving and resourcing mission in their church. We are here to help with that.
The role of the Stewardship department, working with the Parish Stewardship Group and our Honorary Stewardship Advisers, is to work with parishes in any of the following kinds of situations:-
• A PCC reviewing giving in the light of their current or expected financial situation
• A Standing Committee thinking about a major (capital) appeal for a specific project
• A home-group or study series looking at stewardship as part of discipleship
• A Sunday service with a theme of giving, commitment, time & talents or the Christian use of money
But one-off sermons or addresses may not be effective unless tied into an ongoing programme of thinking about God’s gifts to us and how we use them! We encourage parishes to have an annual planned giving review, so that this is looked at regularly as a normal part of the life of your parish.
On these pages you will find a wealth of information and guidance on issues of use of money in the Christian church (see menu on left) and a selection of resources to help encourage giving in a range of ways from church members.
