If you want to learn how to increase giving to your church, there are four areas we need to focus on, and they helpfully form the acronym MINT:
Have the right mechanisms for giving, such as direct debit, contactless, online, legacies, gift aid and so on.
Show the impact of people’s giving, how it enables the church’s ministry and mission.
Explain the need for people to give, so they see how important it is that they give.
Build trust, so that people have confidence that the church will spend their gifts wisely and well.
Visit the The Church of England website for more information about MINT and further resources to support you in encouraging generous giving within your church.
