ACAT is acutely aware that the global pandemic has hit churches hard in innumerable different ways.
And finances have taken a particularly serious knock.
Quite apart from the fact that no congregations frequently mean that there’s no collections, churches have also lost all of their income from church hall lettings.
ACAT remains entirely committed to supporting church treasurers through these unprecedented and exceptionally difficult times.
We works with a range of Partners in Ministry whose underlying purpose is to support and serve the administration of the church.
Among these partners is insurance giant Ecclesiastical which launched Trust130 in 2017 to celebrate its 130th anniversary .
Under the scheme, in line with Ecclesiastical’s charitable ownership and Christian values, every time a new customer takes out a new home insurance policy it offers to donate £130 to the church or cathedral of that customer’s choice.
To date, the company has given more than £430,000 to 2,283 churches around the UK.
There is no limit on the number of donations which can be made to each church or cathedral.
If your home insurance is due for renewal and you are interested in how Trust130 can benefit your church, please contact Ecclesiastical Insurance on 0800 7830 130.
