Parish Share, stewardship and finance

"We each give all that we can, so that we can all receive what we need."   

2 Corinthians 8 and 9

This is what St Paul taught in the New Testament and what the early Church did. We need to recapture the principles demonstrated by the early Church.

Our vision as the Diocese of Bristol, is to help others connect with God as we connect more with our communities and with God ourselves. This is how the Church grows and how God's Kingdom, his big idea, becomes a reality.

We want to be generous to others, because God is generous to us. We want to become a more generous Church.
