We are pleased to let you know that our Resource Library is now ready to go! We have a number of documents and links on the site, but are also working on more, so please keep your eyes on what is happening in this area.

A lot of the work I do here at CCCNZ is supporting churches with their practical resources. I have really appreciated churches contacting me with their queries as this has allowed us to structure our resources around what is needed.

To roll out our Resource Library, we have created a number of logins relevant to each church email contact. These have been emailed out separately to this newsletter. If you receive this newsletter and would like to access the login website, please first contact your church office for the login details. 

If your church has not received a login, please contact office@cccnz.nz with your church name and we can get one sorted for you.

So, what is on the site?


Pay scales

We have addressed a real need from our churches for a central location to pull together different pay scales and allowances information for our churches that employ staff.  At the same time we have been working with various churches in creating our own benchmarking tool to help you give some guidance around paying staff.
 

Job Descriptions

All staff have different job descriptions, but creating these from scratch is often harder than modifying an already created document. We have added in a few sample job descriptions to get working on, as well as some sample contract clauses around study leave and sabbatical leave.
 

Health and Safety

We are still working through our Toolbox, breaking down the larger InterChurch Bureau document into bite size pieces for us as churches. This Toolbox includes templates in both Word and Excel to help you manage the process efficiently.
 

Financial

GST is a big question--so some documents have been put up to help you work through it as a church. Also included in here are some guidelines around paying out honorariums and mileage reimbursements.
 

Governance

Church governance documents and various other policies are available here as well, and this area is being developed as we have been getting queries from churches so there is a lot more in the pipeline. Some examples to come are tools to link long-term strategic plans to the day-to-day financial running of ministries, as well as volunteer ministry models.
 

Child Protection Policies

This is a hot topic at the moment, so we have put up on our website some documents that have been provided to us in this area for wider use within our churches. Further conversation is happening in this area and I will be dedicating a portion of the Admin Roadshow to addressing some discussion around this.
 

Cost Saving

We have come on board with a few organisations who have products or services that are widely used within our churches or support ministries and feel it’s worth sharing the knowledge of these around.
 

So, there is a lot on the go, but there is still more to do!
If your church has any policies that are not on the site but you feel they would be useful for other churches, please contact me and and I can share these around.

CCLI Group Licence: LAST DAY


Today is the last day for getting on board with the CCLI group licence and saving your church 10% on this contract.  We will be compiling the information on Monday, so if you are still interested please get your form to us before Monday 23 July.

Admin Roadshows



I have really appreciated meeting face to face with a number of you around the country as I have attended various events, but I know there are a number more who are working in the area of administration and governance within our churches, camps and support ministries.

So I thought it time to get on the road and come to you!

We’re in the initial stages of planning these events but currently we have Auckland, Manawatu and Canterbury locked in. If your church would be interested in hosting this event with us for the other regions please let me know.

Community Calendar


We've recently launched a Community Calendar on our website for all churches, support ministries and campsites in our movement to share events.

You don't need to be Linked-In formally with us yet to share via the Community Calendar.

Share your event with us by emailing sophiasinclair@cccnz.nz with your event details and, if you'd like to include a graphic, a .png file no larger than 2MB.
 

Facebook


CCCNZ would love to link up on Facebook.

Does your church have a social media page? Make sure you like CCCNZ for our latest updates--and we'll do the same.

One of the best ways to support our social media is to like, share and comment.

Find us on Facebook here.
