Listen to the Sharpen dial-in for church treasurers

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 2015, 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. 

The most recent call was in January, and the agenda was as follows:

Naomi Harrison, Technical Events Co-ordinator


The mosquito effect: highlighting those small irritating issues that can come back to bite

(Stephen Matthews, Head of Accountancy and Consultancy services)

This quarter we looked at…
• Employer Payroll Update
• Gift Aid declarations - what's changing?
• Designated and Restricted funds - a quick refresh


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

(Kevin Russell, Technical Director)
The topic for this quarter was…
• Payments to trustees - navigating the minefield


A good idea from the field
Naomi Harrison interviewed David Flowers, senior Pastor at Leeds Vineyard Church who has spent many years working as an Independent Financial Advisor. Naomi interviewed David on the topic of Pensions and Church.

Question time

This was an opportunity for us to answer some of the questions that were asked throughout the call.

This is a great idea. I would love to share it with my Stewardship team but the sound quality is very distracting! Anyway this can be improved?

Apologies Mike - the sound was disrupted on the day of the live recording, and there wasn't much we could do in post-production to fix it. I hope you're still able to benefit from it somehow.
