10 Different Ways To Raise Money For A New Church Roof

It seems to happen. Sooner or later, a Church with a church building of a certain age needs to look into fixing their roof.

Now presuming people would normally give money to their church anyway, what else can be done to raise – the extra – money for the Church roof?

Here are our 10 different ideas for raising money for a new church roof*:

  1. Hire it as a football pitch. Could sell any holes in the roof as “special goals”.
  2. Roof top tours. Just like the cathedral..?
  3. Divert money from the fund for a new driveway?
  4. Obstacle course!! Particularly good if there are bits that people may fall down.
  5. Storage space for outside equipment. Just chuck it on the roof!
  6. Sponsored tent making competition. Aim to create the best temporary church roof, that way you’re encouraging people to give money for the new roof, while coming up with a short term solution!
  7. Roof Top Garden. Charge people to plant anything in your roof.
  8. Weather reporting platform. Hire it to your local TV station for local weather forecasts.
  9. Outdoor drama stage hire. Perfect for performances of the passion around Easter time.
  10. Stage for local bands. Something like this?
