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 these pages are here to help anyone concerned with increasing giving to their parish
Helping you continue to make a bigger difference
Churches are striving to maintain their community ministries which make the bigger difference with fewer resources and pressurised finances.
Some guidance is offered here to possible sources of trust funding.
