Growing Generous Giving (FC) (03/07/2019)
3rd July @ 9:30 am - 3:00 pm
Grace and generosity lie at the very heart of God’s character, and we too are called to live generously. However, that can be a challenge: both personally and in our local churches. This is especially the case when it comes to money. So to help you and your congregation think about finance and giving in a fresh way, the diocese is running a day conference: Growing Generous Giving.
During the day we will address a number of areas. Drawing on key Biblical texts, we will look at the theology of money, wealth, poverty, debt and possessions. We will consider how to preach on giving, not just to raise funds but to encourage and nurture holistically generous disciples. Finally we shall look at some of the practicalities including: the role of the PCC, installing card reader machines, the Parish Giving Scheme and how running a giving campaign.
The day begins at 9.30 am with coffee and finishes at 3 pm. A sandwich lunch will be provided. The day is intended for clergy, Readers and leaders in mission, but is open to all interested parties. Please book using the Eventbrite link. For more information please call Kate Peacock on 01727 818153.
