Stewardship

Stewardship courses:

Stewardship Training Day is open to parish representatives (incumbents, treasurers, church wardens etc). Please book no more than 2 representatives from each parish, it will allow more parishes to attend. The course will seek to help a parish review of its approach to stewardship and steps to take in implementing a fresh campaign in the context of discipleship and mission. This is not primarily about asking people to give more to their church. Rather it is about responding to St Paul’s invitation to ‘excel in this grace of giving.

21 June 2018 2.00pm – 4.00pm at the Diocesan Office Book here


Stewardship materials:

The resources below are to enable a parish to run its own Stewardship Campaign from scratch. This includes a draft PCC Presentation and a draft Church Presentation together with campaign literature (see particularly the Sample invite; Sample poster;  Sample response form; Sample tri-fold brochure; and GiftAid Standing order form, which is GDPR compliant).

We would also recommend the ‘Giving for Life: Encouraging Generosity in your Parish’ materials with the Leaders’ Guide and PCC Questionnaire. A link to these can be found at http://www.parishresources.org.uk/givingforlife/ .

We recommend that when a parish considers a Stewardship Campaign that it also reviews its Legacy policy and you will find below also a draft Legacy Presentation and a draft policy.
