The Money Revolution

This workbook was written by John Preston, formerly the National Stewardship and Resources Officer for the Church of England. It encourages all of us to apply Christian principles to handling our money, covering areas such as ethical spending, credit and debt, savings and pensions, insurance and giving.

Developing our skills as stewards of God’s resources takes time and focus, just like any other skills. The Money Revolution seeks to equip church members to be better stewards of all our money.  There are related resources such as group discussion material, sermon outlines and spreadsheets to review your own finances.

If you are interested in purchasing copies of the book (they are likely to be about £1.50 each), please email Gary Watson.
