Buying Smarter

Steward your Church’s Resources Effectively

Between them, PCCs spend over £200 million each year on ‘things’ rather than people. 

This covers major repairs to the building, utility bills, paper, photocopiers, insurance 

and so on. The Church has now developed a site called Parish Buying to help parishes buy more effectively – saving time and money, but also enabling greater confidence and better stewardship. The site provides advice, national contracts you can benefit from, and much more.

Parish Buying are here to help you save time and money on key areas of spend (like energy and office supplies) so that you can free up your resources to spend on your church’s mission and ministry. We’ve produced a short video introducing the service – it’s available here.
