Praying about Giving

by Michael Ford last modified 11 Sep, 2021 02:05 AM

Our Diocesan Generous Giving campaign begins with a time to discern how we might engage and be open to hear how we might respond.

The first of the four Sundays of the Campaign focuses on Prayer.

Then on Sunday 19th September we begin a week focusing on God’s Generosity, and how this impacts our lives.

Week three, starting on Sunday 19th September, sees us focus on Thanksgiving as we give thanks for all we have received ourselves and for all the generosity that has come before which has made our churches what they are today.

Finally, on Sunday 3rd October, we look at what Our Response could be.

As the campaign draws to an end, we consider how we are going to respond in our own lives, through our own giving.

We will be invited to complete a pledge form with how we have decided to respond.

The campaign is supported by a range of adaptable resources, everything from video sermons from our Bishops to a special leaflet available in our churches, packed with a host of practical ideas to help to engage us at a personal level.

Together as a Diocese we are committed to supporting each other in our churches as we bring the good news of Jesus Christ to the communities we serve. Resourcing stewardship and giving was endorsed by the October 2020 Diocesan Synod as part of our response to the budget.

So this autumn we are resourcing a Diocesan-wide Generous Giving Campaign with an open invitation to our parishes to take part if they are able.

The resources are flexible and the campaign remains open to parishes to join at any time over the next 6 months.
