Buying & Saving Together - Enabling Mission

Steward your church’s resources effectively with Parish Buying

As the Church of England and Church in Wales’ buying service, we’re here to help you save time and money on key areas of spend (like energy and office supplies) so that you can free up your resources to spend on your church’s mission and ministry. 

Parish Buying was created by the Church, for the Church, and is delivered by the Church of England's National Procurement Officers. 

Register with us to gain access to exclusive member pricing across a range of frequently purchased products. Don’t worry, it’s completely free to register.

Popular Questions

Why do I need to register?

Our deals are specifically negotiated for the Church of England and Church in Wales, so we need to make sure you are who you say you are!

Can more than one person register within a parish?

Of course! Our registration form checks to see if anyone else is registered from your parish first and then you can pop your own details in so that you and your colleague can both login separately but still have the one parish account. (This helps if you both get in touch with us about one query so there’s no duplication of work or information!)

‘Since using Parish Buying we’ve been able to start new projects as well as ensuring our existing ones continue. We have a children’s worker that comes to entertain the kids – it’s great that the savings have enabled this to continue so that the children can keep coming to church. We’ve also started having a separate youth service once a fortnight and bible sessions for them – our now ‘spare’ money has been focussed on the children.’

Nearly £150,000,000 goes on church running expenses every year. If we can reduce that, just think of where the money could be better spent!
