How do we make wise choices about where our money goes? Money Makes Change is a new resource from the Ecumenical Council for Corporate Responsibility to help churches explore challenging issues relating to Christian stewardship of financial resources and assets.
Janie Oliver, ECCR’s CEO, writes: ‘With the help of funding from St Peter’s Saltley Trust, the Ecumenical Council for Corporate Responsibility (ECCR) has launched a new national programme called Money Makes Change. Money Makes Change is a programme and set of resources to help Christians explore and make ethical choices around money. The first resource to be launched as part of the programme is a small group resource, which offers an accessible conversation-based introduction to questions of money and faith. A handbook for facilitators, and accompanying handouts and worksheets, can be downloaded for free from ECCR’s website. Further resources including Bible studies, creative all-age materials, and a resource for churches to take practical action will be released throughout 2020. Money Makes Change builds on ECCR’s work in recent years – specifically, a regional pilot project (Ethical Money Churches) and the Your Faith, Your Finance website that was launched in 2013 in partnership with Quaker Peace and Social Witness. Money Makes Change brings these two strands of work together with the aim of reaching a wider audience and inspiring deeper engagement and more practical action.
