PCC Treasurers

Treasurers are concerned with administration within the church, and all administration, financial administration included, should be seen as a key and core ministry of any church.

Whether you’re new to this role, or have been in post for some time, there are some key support services that will really help you:

National resources 

ACAT Membership

The Association of Church Accountants and Treasurer’s (ACAT) is your must-have resource. We commend all Treasurers to the annual membership (incredibly good value at £22/year), so that you can access training, the ACAT handbook, access to expert advisers and regular, supportive events.
