Fundraising in rural parishes
This guide offers fundraising guidance and tips for small rural churches.
Churches up and down the country rely on an army of volunteers who give their time and dedication to look after church buildings and make sure the worship and outreach continue.
Volunteering is vital to churches, from looking after the buildings, to being there for members of the congregation when they need it the most. Because of this need it can be hard to find enough volunteers to support your church. So, whether you need a volunteer to help with church maintenance, someone to make tea and cake for after every Sunday service, or volunteers for a one off project, you need a resource to help inspire those in your church family and beyond to get involved.
Our church competition 2018 celebrated the work of volunteers, and below you can find out about the wonderful volunteers who won the competition. Each of the volunteers has made a big impact on their church and community through their hard work and dedication.
