‘Your Faith, Your Finance and the Common Good’

On 24 October 2015, ECCR held a Good Money Week conference at St Michael and All Angels church in Exeter.

The conference looked at the role of money in our personal life, our churches, our society and its impact on the world around us, providing an opportunity for people who have a particular interest in faithful stewardship of money and opportunities to use it for the Common Good to hear from experts in their field and share ideas and experiences with each other. The programme is below.
