Parish Resources

At TA we have just become aware of a new Church of England website Parish Resources “supporting stewardship in the local church”. To quote the site itself

We are stewards. Both individually and corporately, all that we have and all that we are comes from God - our time, our money, our skills and the environment. Christian stewardship relates to how we respond to God’s amazing generosity to us.

This site offers a wide range of resources to support all aspects of stewardship in the local church. There are pages for those who preach and teach about stewardship, for encouraging giving in the local church, for parish treasurers, Gift Aid secretaries and for those involved in seeking funding for major projects. Guidance on SORP2005 can be found here, as well as some statistics on giving and church finance.

Additional resources are provided for PCC members in their role as charity trustees, guidance on registering larger PCCs with the Charity Commission, a stewardship toolkit for rural churches, a good practice guide for managing parish reserves, and a number of activities for use in teaching stewardship topics to young people. We also have a sister site with resources on encouraging people to consider leaving a gift to the church in their wills.

All the resources are free.

Although some of the site is specific to Church of England parishes much of the information will be of wider interest.
