Generosity Week

First published on: 16th November 2021

Generosity Week is taking place from Thursday 18 to Wednesday 24 November 2021.

It's a chance to celebrate the joy of God's generosity and launch our new Giving Strategy, which aims to provide a generosity and thankfulness toolkit for churches. 

Generosity and thankfulness are core elements of who we are as Christians. Therefore, as our diocese is implementing ambitious plans to grow it is vital that generosity and thankfulness are at the heart of these as well.
