" [What I found helpful was] the quality of the questions to help us think about how best to communicate our impact. I am going to use the model to speak to the board to help us find ways to measure the impact of our work better." - Lizzie Lowrie, Fresh Expressions
As a church or Christian charity, focussing on your mission is crucial to the spiritual and social impact you have on the individuals and communities you serve.
But do you know how to articulate that impact in a way that rallies greater support, raises more funding and informs your future strategy for accomplishing what God has called you to do? Measuring impact can be very significant but the journey starts earlier than needing to measure your impact – it begins with a set of questions to clearly explain the impact you aim to have and how you create it.
Without this clarity, you may limit your ability to maximise your impact, raise financial support and make the best use of the resources you have.
What will be covered in the training?
In this 2-hour training workshop, run in partnership with Eido Research, you will be introduced to Eido’s Impact Strategy Model. The model simplifies a decade of experience in programme design, impact evaluation and fundraising into five simple but challenging questions for you to answer.
The session will be interactive, building from a worksheet that you will complete throughout. The teaching is packed with examples that bring the model to life, and opportunities for live feedback from the course facilitators. This is an ideal training to bring to your team along with you.
By the end of this session, you will have learned how to apply the model in your own context, putting impact at the centre of your strategy, fundraising, communications, delivery and measurement.
Who is it for?
- Trustees and elders
- Church and Christian charity leaders
- Operations directors and church managers
- Fundraisers and those working in finance
- Anyone who needs to think through the impact of their project, church or charity.
Please Note: This workshop only has capacity for ten organisations. Join as an individual or bring your team with you so that you can implement the ideas afterwards. Only one spokesperson will be able to interact with Eido and the other organisations taking part.
