Start a conversation about faith, money and ethics with a small group in your church, community or workplace.
This interactive workshop resource includes a series of themed ‘conversations’ covering:
- Talking about money and faith
- Values and attitudes towards money
- The big picture (looking at the wider economy)
- Thematic topics: banking, investments, pensions, consumer power
- Making a change
The conversations are designed to be as flexible as possible – so whether you just have 30 minutes or want to run a short course, you’ll find what you need here. There’s an accompanying PowerPoint, downloadable worksheets and optional ‘Go Deeper’ ideas.
The workshop includes a number of worksheets and handouts for participants to work through. These can be downloaded here.
Throughout the workshop, there are opportunities to explore topics further and to “go deeper”. These resources can be found here.
A video about our friend, Sam, who is thinking about how his faith and his finances can be better aligned. This 2 minute video can help provide an introduction to the issues explored in the Money Makes Change programme.
In this short 10 minute video, Rosie, our National Programme Manager, caught up with Colin Darling to ask for his top tips. Colin developed material for the Money Makes Change workshop resource as part of an ECCR project in the West Midlands and shares his wisdom on how to get groups talking about faith and money, how to handle sensitive topics and how to help people to move from discussion to action.
