What are we up to?

At Stewardship we’re on a mission to strengthen Christian causes and part of that is to support treasurers and trustees across the UK church in the responsibilities they have taken on. We've got tons of practical advice and wisdom to help you with all that you do and we want to make sure it’s getting to the right places.

Our passion is seeing the Church running smoothly with all its ducks in a row and the treasurers well supported. We know that you’re all rather busy, quite often doing this on a voluntary basis, often in addition to your full time job, and whereas we'd love to bring you all to our London offices for a catch up we've realised that's a bit impractical…

So we're bringing that catch up to you - with a brand new, handy lunchtime call to dial in to on a quarterly basis.

 

So who’s it for?

This is for anyone involved in the financial stewardship of any UK church, any denomination – but is specifically aimed at those carrying the responsibilities of church treasurer.

 


Agenda:

Introduction
Naomi Harrison, Technical Events Co-ordinator

The mosquito effect: highlighting those small irritating issues that can come back to bite
Kevin Russell, Technical Director 

This quarter we will look at…
• Audit threshold
• Gift Aid Small Donations Scheme
• New SORP with added FRIZZIE!

The meaty topic: taking a closer look at a topic that affects you
Stephen Matthews, Head of Accountancy and Consultancy services

When An Inspector Calls: what to do before that happens…
• Gift Aid
• Staff, Volunteers and Tax
• Naughty Expenditure

A good idea from the field
For this event, Naomi Harrison will be interviewing Reverend Jonathan Rust  from Islington, London and will be asking him more about the ‘Radical Redevelopment’ carried out at his church.

Question time
An opportunity for us to answer some of the questions you may have asked throughout the call. If you would like to post a question, please make sure that you join us on the web.


 

But when will I eat my sandwiches?

You won’t have to do a thing on the call - nothing - just dial in and listen! All the lines dialling in will be muted, so we won’t be able to hear you tucking into your sarnies either.

If you are joining us on the web then you can send us a question if you want to - but that’s up to you.

 

Sounds great – where do I sign up and how do I tell others?

The first call will be on Thursday 25th June, 2015 from 13.00 – 14.00. To sign up register on Eventbrite here.
