Listen to the recording from the September treasurers' dial-in!

By Alexandra Khan | 19 October 2015

Listen to the recording of the quarterly church treasurer's dial-in for free!

At Stewardship we’re on a mission to strengthen Christian causes and a huge part of that is supporting treasurers and trustees across the UK church. So, we decided to bring to you - wherever you are - tons of practical advice and wisdom through a handy lunchtime dial-in.

Stewardship kicked off its new, free advice service for Church Treasurers in June this year, and so far it has been an incredible success. Over 100 people have called in for each session so far, and our in-house experts have shared their knowledge across a variety of relevant and current topics. Delegates found the dial-in so helpful that we decided to share the recording of the most recent call. 


Our last dial in was in September and the agenda was as follows:  


Introduction (0mins – 4:16)

Naomi Harrison, Technical Events Co-ordinator

The mosquito effect: highlighting those small irritating issues that can come back to bite (4:17 – 4:48)

Kevin Russell, Technical Director

  • Summer Budget 2015 – what’s in it for charities? (4:50 – 9:43)
  • Charities’ annual returns – do you have your policy ducks in a row? (9:44 – 13:52)
  • SORP – FRSSE – is it set to frazzle? (13:53 – 19:10)

The meaty topic: taking a closer look at a topic that affects you

Stephen Matthews, Head of Accountancy and Consultancy services

  • Financial Controls – what’s all the fuss about? (19:15 – 31:47)

A good idea from the field (32:21 – 44:45)

For this, Naomi Harrison will be interviewed Steve Pierce the Director of Learning and Stewardship for the Diocese of Liverpool. He talked about his new book ‘Beyond the collection plate’ and gave tonnes of practical ideas surrounding giving.

** Please note that the promotional offer of a free copy of Steve’s book was only available for those who dialled in. If you would like to buy Steve’s book, please use the links below.
