Churches Helping Communities Competition

First published 4th August 2016
Ecclesiastical Insurance is looking for churches to tell them about how they are connecting with their communities.

The company is looking for entries to its Reaching out, Inviting in - Churches Helping Communities Competition 2016. Churches simply need to tell Ecclesiastical about their church community activity for a chance to win a top prize of 10,000. There are five runner-up prizes of 2,000 each.

Michael Angell, Church Operations Director, said: "We have had some really interesting and exciting entries so far and we are very keen that as many churches as possible get the chance to enter before the close date of 31 August 2016.

"It is important to emphasise that no idea is too small making a difference to the community is what will count, no matter what size the church, congregation or project."

The competition is open to any Anglican church in the UK. Ecclesiastical is looking for ideas that are:

Creative What is new, different or imaginative about the way a church helps its community?

Effective How has the church supported the community been supported?

Inspirational Will the idea inspire other churches?

The six finalist will be announced in early October and will be invited to a prize giving ceremony in London on 9th November when the overall winner will be declared.
