Ethical Money Churches

June 12th, 2017 Ethical Money Churches
  • Would you like to explore how you and your church can use your money and assets for the common good?
  • Are you passionate about making a positive impact on your local community?
  • Would you like to reflect on what the Bible says about money and Christian Discipleship?
  • Did you use Dethroning Mammon as a Lent Course and would like to follow up with action?

The Ethical Money Churches (EMC)  Project helps worshipping communities to explore  challenging issues relating to Christian stewardship of financial resources and assets.

EMC provides opportunities for sharing and learning about the ethical use of money and assets. We provide interactive study & discipleship resources, worship   material, access to advice and speakers, events,  discussion groups, conferences, talks and information and support on practical ways to engage with financial issues. We help you explore faith perspectives on ethical banking, ethical investment, credit unions, social enterprises, fair trade and more.

What does the Ethical Money Churches Project offer?

  • A Five Week Bible course: a new resource to look at a range of issues around faith and finance
  • Workshops: providing congregations with practical information and resources into steps that an be taken to connect faith and finance
  • Publicity: through EMC social media, the actions and successes of churches engaging in the project can be shared for the benefit of others
  • Partnerships: support for churches to work with other local churches, organisations, charities and the surrounding community to build strong, lasting partnerships
  • Support: Our EMC Officer is available to provide ongoing support to congregations throughout the process

Feedback from the EMC project

“We have run community events which were attended by people we did not know before.“
“Personally, I had never considered seriously the close correlation between the Christian Faith and money  issues. The course made me more aware of this.”
“It has been a great opportunity to discuss topics we normally don’t feel comfortable talking about”
