Churches and Commerce – An Event to help your Church Maximise Commercial Revenue

Many churches struggle to cover the costs of their buildings and the ministry needed in their area. Finding other sources of income in addition to congregational giving can help significantly and can also extend the church’s engagement in God’s mission.

This event enables you to hear from people for whom commercial activities, including social enterprises, are making a real difference, not only to their church finances but also to their wider mission.

Organised by HeartEdge, a growing ecumenical network of churches and other organisations, at St Martin in the Bull Ring (B5 5BB) on Wednesday 7 March at 10am - 3.30pm.

Cost: £10 for HeartEdge members, £20 for all others.
