Church Resources – Helping Church and Not-For-Profit Organisations

Church Resources provides a range of services for the Church and not-for-profit sector, including this NFPNews publication. Church Resources also aggregates buying power for a wide range of products and services used by health, welfare, aged care, education, and parish organisations.

Our aim is to help our Members reduce costs, improve the efficiency and quality of their services, enabling them to put more time and energy into their core missions. We do this through a combination of procurement programs and strategic initiatives, where we facilitate collaboration and partnership between a wide variety of stakeholders, including not-for-profit, commercial enterprises and government.

Another key goal of Church Resources since it was launched in 1997 has been to build strong communication channels for church and other not-for-profit communities.

Church Resources originally founded and published the website and daily newsletter for CathNews, and the website and monthly newsletter for Catholic Australia. Both these services have been recognised for their quality in the annual Australasian Catholic Press Association and Australasian Religious Press Association awards.

While starting out with a focus on Catholic institutions, Church Resources – having been owned by the Australian Catholic Bishops Conference until 2017 – has expanded its services to other church groups and all non-profit organisations. Church Resources now has more than 22,000 member organisations in the non-profit market.

Church Resources is now a wholly owned brand of MAPS Group Ltd. MAPS Group has been a professional procurement aggregator for the local government sector for over 30 years.

Membership to Church Resources is free to all church and not-for-profit organisations. To find out more call us on 1300 CHURCH (1300 248 724).
