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. 

Christingle

For almost half a century Christingle has been a key part of celebrations within churches and schools, with the candlelit services a firm favourite with supporters of all ages.

Join us to celebrate Christingle's 50th Birthday in 2018 and bring your church and community together for this exciting occasion which helps us support thousands of children and young people accross the country. We have all you'll need to plan a fantastic service as well as the resources to make it a truly memorable event.

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.

Mothering Sunday and other seasonal 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 resources like our online Advent calendar, and this year we're offering £500 to selected churches as part of our Grow it Lent fundraising campaign. 

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.
