Money Makes Change

Money Makes Change is ECCR’s programme for individuals and churches.

The way we spend, save and invest money has a huge impact on the world around us. Loving our neighbours and protecting God’s creation means taking seriously what we do with all our resources, not just the money we give away.

Money Makes Change is building a community of people passionate about connecting faith and finance. Come and get involved! Watch our introductory video (right), explore the resources below or check out our upcoming events.

Programme Resources

Start a conversation in your church about faith, money and a fairer world! We have a range of resources for you to use, and more coming soon. Do get in touch if you have any questions or feedback on the resources.

Money Makes Change Pledge

The Money Makes Change Pledge is our new resource for churches. The Pledge gives your church a framework to look at how you connect faith, money and ethics – in your church’s financial decisions, teaching and worship, and in how you serve your neighbours, locally and globally. You can choose up to 4 actions to work on as part of your Pledge, for example switching to a more ethical bank, supporting local social enterprises or campaigning on tax justice. Explore the resources by following ‘Find Out More’ or watch the video to find out more.

Interactive Workshop

The interactive workshop resource gives you everything you need to explore how the choices we make around money can change the world for the better. The resources include a leader’s guide, PowerPoint slides, worksheets, resources to go deeper and video content. 

If you’d like to experience a taster of the workshop and some of what it has to offer, you can watch a recording of a Taster Session we held online on 18 June 2020 (see below). 

Action Starters

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:

Churches can take practical action by choosing to bank with a more ethical bank. We’ve looked at 5 of the more ethical options out there.  Click here to view our analysis.  

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

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.

Guided Prayer Resource

Take some time to be still and reflect on your faith and finances with our Money Makes Change guided prayer resource, which combines a guided reflection with reflective music and images. 

We're excited to offer these resources for use and more are on the way!

Why Money Makes Change?

We launched Money Makes Change in January 2020 to bring together our educational resources for individuals and churches and to inspire action for a fairer, more sustainable world. We want to help Christians make decisions around money that can change the world for the better.

The programme draws on learning from our Ethical Money Churches pilot projects in the South West and West Midlands, and content produced for the YourFaithYourFinance website, a joint venture with Quaker Peace & Social Witness.

Our logo combines a symbol of money with the impression of a person offering up their resources in a positive way. 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.
