    “All things are yours… and you belong to Christ, and Christ belongs to God.” 1 Cor 3:21-23 

    How can we best respond to God’s amazing generosity, making us stewards of His creation? All things are ours – so what are we going to do with them? 

    We are running a series of Parish Share and Encouraging Generosity seminars across the Diocese over the coming months. 

    This two-hour session will be packed with useful information to guide your PCC in making your Parish Share commitment for 2018.

    The evening will include:

    • an update on how Parish Share is being used across the diocese, an explanation of the process behind making Parish Share requests - including improvements made this year in light of your feedback - and a time for questions and discussion;
    • an overview of the support, materials and programmes available to help your church to raise income and encourage generous giving, including details of the Parish Giving Scheme, Giving in Grace, and Giving for Life.

    If you have any suggestions for what you'd like to get out of the evening, please contact Clare Fussell on clare.fussell@bristoldiocese.org or 0117 906 0100.
