Three Measures of a Healthy Church - Introducing the 'Triple A'

The ‘Triple A’

We all want to see thriving and healthy churches all across the UK. Good financial stewardship is not simply about ticking boxes to please the regulators, it’s also about transforming the culture of money within the church. So bringing together knowledge and practical experience from dealing with hundreds of churches over the years, Stewardship has developed the ‘Triple A’ for churches. Taking the premise of the triple A from within the financial sector and applying it within the Church.

In the financial sector the Triple A is an indication of financial strength and a stamp of approval, the ‘gold’ standard. The Triple A is shorthand for three attributes, which can be seen as important for churches and church leaders to live by when it comes to finances and handling money, what would deem the gold standard. The Triple A stands for a healthy approach to:

  • Attitude
  • Administration
  • Accountability

Stewardship believes that churches who operate well in these three areas will be churches that have a good and healthy relationship with money, handling it well and achieving the gold standard.

Churches who operate in this way will:

  • See the benefit of engaged and discipled church members and supporters;
  • Be increasingly able to fulfil the New Testament call to be generous and well resourced;
  • Operate with best practice in managing money; and
  • Be a church that is ‘good to give to’.

To help you appraise where your own church is, Stewardship have created a ‘Financial Health Check for Churches' centred on the Triple A. They have broken the Triple A down into 9 key areas that they believe will help give you the fullest picture of your strengths and weaknesses.
