Church Planting

For leaders starting a new church

Contact us

Every location, leader and church is different. Through the Church Planting Pathway, you'll be able to map your context and create your own roadmap that sets you off on the right foot. Whether you're just thinking about planting a church or have already launched publicly, this is a valuable tool.

This will help you to explore the fundamentals of funding yourself as church leader, managing tithes and offerings, registering as a charity and more. Together, we'll simplify your journey and help you build strong, healthy foundations.

Funding New Churches

Key Considerations for Leaders

Dean of Church Planting at St Hild College, Reverend Dr Christian Selvaratnam discusses with John Keskeys and Alex Huson why money is important in the Kingdom of God and how to form healthy missional churches right from the start.

We're here when you need us

If you need specific help, our Stewardship teams can provide guidance and services, including forming a charity, training your trustees, giving and tithing, resourcing your team, accounts examination, setting up employment contracts and helping you to pay staff easily. We even provide loans for purchasing or renovating church buildings.

No one becomes a church leader for the love of governance, accounts and budgets. Let us support you and help strengthen the growth of your church so you can serve your congregation, make generous disciples who become faithful stewards, and grow God's kingdom together.

Frequently Asked Questions


A.

For church plants, the first 3-4 years are typically the most critical time for shaping and establishing a new church. Our governance and support services, and Partner Account, can support you from the outset, or as necessary.


A.

No, we don't offer this.


A.

This service is specifically designed for new church plants within England and Wales. There are some differences in Scotland or Northern Ireland. We cannot currently form new charities in these nations as they have independent regulatory bodies and guidance may vary, but we still add significant value to churches through our other services.


A.

There is no requirement for you to use all of our services. It all depends on the skills, experience and resources you currently have in your church and we can help you identify what will work best for you as and when you need different elements of support.
