Giving and stewardship webinars 2021


Webinar graphic

Over the coming months, a number of workshops and webinars will explore different aspects of good stewardship practice.

Each session will be run twice: once in the morning and then again in the evening, so that as many people as possible can attend. While it's preferable to attend the live session, so that you can participate and ask questions, they will be recorded and uploaded here for anyone to watch again.

Ecclesiastical free grants and fundraising webinar

Fundraising in a Box – Walk Through: 11am, 10 June.

The new fundraising resource for Ecclesiastical customers – Fundraising in a Box. A simple step by step guide, printed in five easy to navigate booklets packaged up in a neat little box and full of tips, suggestions and resources to help churches with their fundraising. You are invited to a webinar on 10 June at 11am where Kay Short & Heather Ford, Church Insurance Consultants with Ecclesiastical will guide you through the elements of the toolkit. It will cover how to plan a church fundraising campaign, where to find funding and how to prepare successful applications. 

Each church fundraising campaign will be different,  but by the end of the webinar participants should be more familiar with the Fundraising in a Box resource and more confident in taking the steps to building a successful fundraising campaign. 

The training will walk you through the Fundraising in a Box resource and so it would be useful to have a copy with you at the session so you can refer to the various elements of it  as we talk about them. The boxes were sent to Ecclesiastical customers in January and would have gone to the correspondent, the person in the church who deals with the insurance. If you require further copies please let us have your email address and these can be ordered for you, although we may not be able to distribute them ahead of the seminar. Whilst the boxes are only available for customers if  you are attending the webinar and not an Ecclesiastical customer all of the resources referred to (albeit in a slightly different format) can be found here

To book and receive your meeting link, please email kay.short@ecclesiastical.com
