Parish Buying Scheme
Parish Buying is a national scheme to help parishes and church schools reduce costs.
Each year parishes spend over £200 million, in addition to paying for clergy and local ministry. Until now, parishes have had to largely buy independently without being able to benefit from our overall purchasing power. The new Parish Buying service aims to change that.
The service is provided by national and diocesan colleagues working in partnership, and offers a range of competitive national deals specifically negotiated for parishes. These include energy (electricity / gas / oil), office products, photocopying, IT software and fire safety, all focussed on saving parishes time and money. You will also find a range of buying guides which include helpful tips and advice, all of which seek to help parishes buy with confidence and also be better stewards in their spending.
If this is something your parish or church school could find useful, please take a look at the Parish Buying leaflet.
