Welcome to our Talking Money Section giving you and your parish good stewardship advice
Covid-19 has changed many things. We are doing worship, pastoral care and meetings in new ways. Some of these changes will be part of our ‘new normal’. As lockdown eases and churches re-open things will look a little different.
Church finance is also changing. This will mean some lasting change. Your church may be facing a ‘triple whammy’:
- Loss of trading and rental income from halls, fundraising and fees. We await developments and guidance in these areas.
- Loss of service offerings, especially for churches heavily dependent on weekly envelopes and open plate offerings.
- Pastoral and practical concerns as some are hit hard by economic upheaval. Sensitivity and stewardship go hand in hand.
So we have developed Talking Money to help anyone concerned with increasing giving to their parish
This Talking Money section gives you support and advice on the following areas
- Parish Giving Scheme
- Digital Giving
- Giving in Grace
Parish Giving Scheme: The best way to encourage giving
The Parish Giving Scheme is the most effective, efficient method for people to give regularly.
It is successfully used by 85% of Liverpool churches with about 3,500 people gifting £3.13million in 2021.
As a way to make a difference, nothing else comes close.
