Teaching and Worship Resources

by Michael Ford last modified 22 Aug, 2018 02:46 PM

Teaching and Worship Resources


  • Bring together Bible study with creative and visual elements to encourage group members to explore their personal experiences
  • Stimulating group discussion but also making space for personal reflection in and after the meetings
  • Talking about giving but aware that giving is influenced by how we manage all our money
  • Being rooted in the word of God but drawing the theme of the seasons of nature from a remarkable modern story of generosity, ‘The Selfish Giant’ by Oscar Wilde

The material, including leader’s notes and participants’ workbooks, can be downloaded free of charge.  You can also get copies of the workbooks (free apart from p&p) from our Stewardship Advisers.

There are a large number of resources to support Giving for Life in your parish. You can also get copies of the PCC material (free apart from p&p) from our Stewardship Advisers:

God Loves a Cheerful Giver

is a diocesan resource for worship, prayer and teaching on Christian giving. You can download a copy here. We welcome comments on this resource. Offers of new materials used in parishes - that you are willing to share with others - are particularly welcome!

First Fruits (Canterbury Press 2001)

is an anthology on generosity and giving containing a wide range of material on worship and preaching.  It includes a disc containing the complete text in Microsoft Word and Rich text format.

General Resources

on the subject of stewardship, giving and finance in the church are available on a number of websites:

  • Parish Resources – material for use in preaching, teaching and leading worship, and practical advice on stewardship and giving in your church. This site also contains helpful information for PCC members on their responsibilities as charity trustees and the process for registering with the Charity Commission.
  • Stewardship - sermon notes, practical advice on family money issues such as budgeting, handling debt and borrowing and resources for young people.
  • The Money Revolution - help on applying Christian principles to handling money offering a distinctively Christian slant on issues such as ethical spending, credit and debt, savings, generosity and insurance.
