Money Makes Change
Money Makes Change
Taking our learnings from the Ethical Money Churches pilots, as well as the YourFaithYourFinance website (our joint venture with Quaker Peace & Social Witness), we’re excited to launch the Money Makes Change programme.
Money Makes Change is the new name for our education programme and encompasses resources for individuals, small groups and churches.
Here you’ll find resources available to download, free of charge, for you to explore. Coming in Q1 2020, we’ll have more resources available on an online hub for individuals and churches to use, as well as lots of ways to take practical action.
Why Money Makes Change?
The way we spend, save and invest money has a huge impact on the world around us. Our financial decisions affect the neighbours (locally and globally) we are called to love, and the whole of creation, which we are called to protect.
Our logo brings together money with the impression of an active, positive person. As a community, Christians in the UK have stewardship over billions of pounds. Our decisions around money can make change happen, for the good of all.
We launched our Money Makes Change programme in January 2020. We’d love you to explore the resources we have available for your small group or church and find out how you can make a difference.

We’d love to know how widely the resource is being used so it would be helpful if you could include your name, town/city and church or organisation (if applicable).
Money Makes Change encourages Christians to take practical action to make a difference. We’re working on a series of Action Starters to help individuals and churches do just that! These are below:
We are working on more Action Starters, but if you have any ideas as to what we should focus on next, please get in touch!
Messy Money helps people of all ages think about faith and money through creative, hands-on activities, storytelling and prayer. It is a joint resource produced with Messy Church.
