Money and Giving

A Giving Strategy for Churches

Many churches struggle with balancing the books and with inspiring their congregation about giving. This eight point approach was developed in two large churches in the UK. It emphasises the importance of a vision and mission for the church that is understood and owned by the congregation. It also recognises that giving isn’t just about money, it includes time, talents, practical service and prayer. It’s written for:

  • Ministers and treasurers of local churches.

  • Other church leaders including members of the church council, diaconate, eldership or leadership team.

  • Stewardship advisers in denominations and local churches.
