COVID-19: An update from our charity formation team

Access Stewardship’s full update here

Its business as usual for our charity formation service with all members of our team now working from home. To contact our team, please use our normal email address and telephone numbers, however we ask that you do not send any items to us by post at this time. Please send items to us electronically by email, or contact us to arrange an alternative.



Stewardship registers around 70 new charities every year. Our team have extensive experience and can provide specialist advice tailored to churches and Christian charities.

We keep it simple. One application form is all you need to complete and we will do the rest - including smoothing the way through the Charity Commission and Companies House process, where required.

Our service is delivered in association with a specialist firm of solicitors; one of the market leaders for their work with churches and Christian charities.
