Training sessions designed for church committees will be recorded and posted here, intended to be a resource to the effective running of your church and its activities.

Church Treasurers / Preparing end of year accounts

The Zoom session, recorded in November 2020, is aimed at church treasurers to support them in preparing the end of year accounts and balance sheet. This will assist in meeting reporting obligations to the church membership (at Annual General Meetings), the Union, and the Charity Commission (or equivalent) for churches registered as charities. This session was delivered by the SNU and SNU Trust (SNUT). As always, if you have any questions or need any help, contact us.
