Christian stewardship is a way of living in which we recognise that everything belongs to God. We are stewards of all that God has given us including our time, our abilities, our possessions, and our money.
Congregations are encouraged to put stewardship on the agenda of every Kirk Session meeting. Making sure stewardship is part of our discussions helps us cultivate our gifts, share them sacrificially, and return them to God with increase.
How does stewardship look in your church?
Hopefully your church is well resourced in its worship, vision, and mission, and those resources are well managed by the office-bearers. For example, think about how you use your buildings, the money given, and the abilities within the congregation. Is your church growing? Can your offerings go further through collecting Gift Aid?
