Raising money can be fun and an easy way for your church to engage with issues of poverty and disadvantage.

Mother and daughter

A large percentage of our income comes from individuals and groups in church communities. Their generosity enables and underpins our work with disadvantaged and vulnerable children. 

Our fundraising is just one response to our prayer and worship, and we are committed to providing resources to help you do both. 

Summer celebrations

Churches play a vital role in helping vulnerable children and young people across the country. 

Perhaps there are children’s workers or ambassadors for our charity in your congregation. A service of celebration is a perfect way to say thank you to these special people while raising awareness of the issues many vulnerable children face today. 

We've got lots of ideas to help you raise money and celebrate this summer, whether that's through a special service, a picnic or by holding disadvantaged children in your prayers.

Mothering Sunday, Christingle and special services

Services like Mothering Sunday and Christingle often bring new people into church, and reach out to children and young people in your area. We also offer lots of seasonal worship resources like our Lent materials.

Or why not chose a Christening gift that makes a difference to some of our country's most disadvantaged children?

Carol singing

Carol singing is a fun and festive way to raise funds for disadvantaged children.

We’ve got lots of tips, carols and service suggestions to inspire you.

Collections

You could do a Collection for Children, which is easy to adapt to your own context. Or keep a collection box in your home or church, an easy and effective way of getting rid of your loose change. These alone bring in over £2 million every year.
