Church and Faith Groups

Dealing with a bank that has quality of life and human dignity at its heart makes all the difference.

Become a Triodos Bank customer, and you’ll be part of a banking community where money is lent exclusively to organisations that benefit people and our planet. Over the past 20 years we have supported a wide range of church and faith groups, which currently include Anglican Christians (Methodist, Baptist and Evangelical), Religious Society of Friends (Quakers), Judaism, Sikh and Buddhists.

We understand the unique challenges that you face in making investment decisions when a large part of your income may be based on donations and ad hoc giving, and offer flexible terms that allow for your future fundraising activity.

Customer story: Life Church Hook

The church is located in the village of Hook, with a weekly service attended by around 110 people and growing steadily. It also runs a number of community activities, workshops and initiatives. We financed the construction of a new church on the site of the previous one, which provides a meeting space as well as a base for the pastor and admin team. Read more
