Evangelical Alliance Ireland is devoted to equipping Irish churches and Christians with resources to enable them to serve their communities and the nation as effectively as possible.

Obviously, the extent to which we can do this is dependant on the resources available to us. Therefore, your prayers and your financial support are highly valued, as is your volunteering of your time and talents should projects arise that provide opportunity for us to partner together.

Later this year, we will be developing a "members only" section providing additional resources to our members.

Over the past year, in response to queries from churches throughout Ireland, EAI has organised a number of regional seminars dealing with various issues relating to the management and governance of churches. Various professionals from different disciplines assisted us with their expertise in hosting these seminars. More will be scheduled in the future and additional topics will also be addressed.

In the meantime, a number of guideline documents addressing these topics have been developed and are now available to download. These represent best practices in the various areas addressed and will assist you in development and implementation of your own standards and protocols.
