There are many dimensions to Christian Stewardship - from the way we live individually as disciples of Jesus Christ to the way in which, together, we nurture and use all our resources to support the ministry and mission of the Church in our communities.

These pages outline the ways in which the Diocesan Stewardship & Resources Officer and the Area Stewardship Groups can support churches on any aspect of stewardship.

“In the gospel of Jesus Christ, the Church has all the resources it needs to conduct its mission task... it is often not a lack of money which causes the Church to struggle to fulfil its mission task, but rather a poverty of vision...
The way we use ‘our’ money is a litmus test of our faith and commitment”
