How we are funded

The charitable work of BRF Ministries is funded by income generated through our charitable activities and by donations from individuals, churches, gifts in wills, fundraising campaigns and charitable trusts.

Sales of our books and resources, along with fees from events and training and our other charitable activities, generate around half of our funding needs. However, to provide all that we offer across Anna Chaplaincy, Living Faith, Messy Church and Parenting for Faith, we depend on the generous support of people like you.

Our work is only possible because of people who stand alongside us in ministry and care about what we do. Last year, 4,505 individuals. 87 churches and 37 charitable trusts helped us to make a difference to the lives of thousands of people, both young and old.

We’d love you to join us.
