Resources for Clergy

Take a look below at the different resources available to make your role as a church leader as easy as possible, especially in terms of speaking and teaching about money and generosity, as well as keeping an eye on your parish finances and leading your PCC.

Support For You

There are many resources out there to support you practically in your parishes. Click on the image below to open up our Resource Pack for Clergy. This pack is full of links to different webpages where you can find more information on giving, fundraising and treasurer support.


The Stewardship team offers support in many different ways, including attending and speaking with PCCs, hosting Zoom meetings and webinars, and offering 1-to-1 meetings. All clergy are welcome to email the team to book in a 1-to-1 session, to go through your parish's Financial Dashboard, and discuss what is going well in your parish as well as what could be focussed on, or introduced to the congregation. These sessions can be delivered in person in Church House and on Zoom, whatever is easiest for you.

Resources for Services

Talking about Giving and Generosity does not come naturally to all, but there are many service plans and sermon outlines to help make this easier.

The Generosity Learning Hub is a great place to look for sermon ideas, service plans, and small group material. You will need to create an account and this will give you access to three courses that help introduce different topics for sermons: The Theology of Giving, Stewardship in the Local Church, and Enabling Ministry at a Parish Level. These all come with supporting materials, such as brochures, promise cards, and other literature. This hub also includes other resources for leading small groups, and for discussing generosity with young people. There are also templates for different services, including daily morning prayer, service of the word, and eucharist.

Parish Resources is a great website for finding guidance on the administration and governance side of leading a church. This website is managed by the national Giving & Generosity team and as well as the practical guidance, there is a wealth of resources to help with leading services, including Giving Programmes as well as Preaching and Worship Resources
