Digital Giving Evening

Date: 26th June 2018

Time: 19:00 - 21:30

The Mission Team would like to invite you to an evening event for Parish Giving Officers and others who have an interest in developing digital giving in the parish. We are living in an increasingly cashless society and new forms of giving are growing fast. This is particularly true amongst younger givers, but many older givers give through digital giving portals too.

Although regular giving is the bedrock of support for most churches, one-off donations are a very useful additional supplement to this. Enabling people to make a one off donation online, by mobile phone or by card can really increase the amount your church can raise for the mission of the local church and specific appeals. Led by Eleanor Stead and Esther Stewart from the Church of England’s National Stewardship Team, we will be exploring the world of digital giving. During the first part of the evening Eleanor and Esther will:

  • Introduce the Digital Giving scene and explain what Digital Giving is
  • Introduce us to various donation platforms
  • Talk about Text Giving and Crowd Funding

The second part of the evening will take the form of a Card Reader Workshop when Eleanor and Esther will: Introduce us to Card Readers Talk about the Church of England’s Card Reader Trials Introduce and demonstrate Card Readers that are available through the Parish Buying Service.

Explore how card readers can be used in your church There will also be an opportunity to practice using a card reader and download the card reader app so please do bring your mobile phone.

We expect this evening will be well attended so please book early to avoid disappointment.
