Church Finances

Have a look at the Parishbuying site, for Church of England specific deals on a range of things from utilities to stationary.

We have a specific Gift Aid information page.

Christian Giving

This is the Oxford Diocese site – note the pdfs dont load in some browsers.

Giving in Grace is a lay led stewardship programme from the Diocese of Liverpool linking faith with giving as an act of worship, thanksgiving and ministry. The site has much useful information.

Parish Resources has a wide range of advice. There is information on givingInvesting Reserves, and many other areas – look at their homepage for the full range. 

Here are a couple of Diocese recommended links – The money revolution and TRIO – The Responsibility is Ours.

Support to raise funds for projects

The Diocese can offer support and advice.

GRANTnet is a diocesan recommended site (see here for their summary) for finding available grants for anything from refurbishment to youth workers.

Faithworks is an organisation that aims to ‘help churches develop their role at the heart of their community’. They are now part of Oasis UK and you can find their resources page here.  They have had useful information on funding for projects, and recommended the NCVO site, Funding Central, for up to date information.

If your church is happy to use lottery funding, then the Awards for All fund may be worth applying to for specific projects.
