Encouraging Generous Giving

Each week hundreds of thousands of Church of England members give their time, their skills and their money to support the work of the Church. Without them, the Church’s ministry and its participation in mission would be far less significant.

This short guide seeks to equip parishes to nurture generosity, and to do so in a holistic way – whole-hearted, open generosity that responds to need, as Jesus teaches the Good Samaritan showed when he responded to the need he encountered on the road to Jericho.  The booklet provides a range of simple takss that churches can do to make a difference:

  • Preach and teach generosity
  • Link Giving with mission & ministry
  • Thank givers annually.
  • Encourage church members to review their giving once a year
  • Support those who wish to leave a gift in their will
  • Maximise Gift Aid, including the new Small Donations Scheme.
