As a diocese we are committed to supporting leaders in local churches by offering high quality, up to date training and advice through regular events and surgeries. During 2017 & 2018 your Parish Giving Advisers will be working with colleagues from partner organisations, to offer a series of eight events, located across the Diocese, themed around the Eight-Point Giving for Life action plan, mirroring the themes of these Giving & Stewardship webpages. All events are free (unless otherwise stated) and are open to all involved in the leadership and life of the local church. Coming along to these events is the best way of keeping in touch with the latest news and resources to help your local church, and great way of learning from and supporting others who are engaged in similar work. Information on how to book will be made available with the details of each event, when advertised.
Encourage others to come along with you. It’s always more fun that way, and sharing transport reduces costs and helps protect the environment! If no one else is planning to attend from your local church, check with your neighbouring churches; it’s a great way to get to know each other better, to learn from each others experience, and to make new friends!
The Association of Church Accountants and Treasurers also offer regular training events especially for those involved in local church finance (there is usually a charge to this training) www.acat.uk.com/2017.html
