Firstly, thank you for all the work you do as a PCC Treasurer. Most of what you do probably goes on behind the scenes but helps provide the foundation from which parishes can flourish and spread God’s love.
You are not alone
Being the treasurer, especially initially, can be a daunting calling with a significant amount of responsibility and a role that covers a wide breadth of finance. No treasurer is the same and no parish is the same, so it is not a case of one glove fits all approach. The Church of England Birmingham is here to offer support, whether it is just a little bit of assurance and encouragement or whether it is the opposite end of the spectrum with the Parish Bookkeeping Service.
