Parish Buying

Hunting down the best value deals for your church isn’t always easy and takes time. That’s why the National Church and the dioceses set up the Parish Buying service, which makes use of the bulk buying power of the Church. There are also a range of buying guides available offering helpful tips and advice, all of which help parishes to not only save time and money, but also be better stewards in their spending.

Parish Finance

This site is provided by the Church of England’s National Stewardship & Resources team and offers over 400 pages of resources (web & pdf) to support all aspects of finance, stewardship, administration and management in the local church, as well as links to other sites and pages of interest.


We occasionally send out emails to all our diocesan Treasurers, with information and resources that are relevant to the work you do. Please contact Chris Parker if you are not receiving these emails, so that we can add you to our database.
