Budgets form an important part of a church or Christian charity’s framework of financial controls. Budgets do not take away our reliance on God’s provision but they do perform positive functions including providing the means for a church or charity to prioritise its resources. This template, an extract from a broader financial operating policy, and its associated guidance provides the basis from which churches and charities can construct a budget policy, and can be easily adapted by all organisations to fit their own particular situation.
