Rural Giving Day

    Encouraging generosity
    18 February 2020

    Hosted by North Wiltshire Deanery
    Tuesday 24 March to  2.30pm at St Mary’s Hullavington.

    This day is for anyone in rural churches, who wants to increase or stabilise their church income. Aimed at clergy, treasurers, churchwardens, and anyone else with an involvement in church finance.

    Archdeacon Christopher Bryan will talk about how to engage a rural church and its community in giving, using real-life examples and his experience of a being parish priest. He’ll talk about both the challenges and the opportunities. We also hope to give you the chance to learn from each other and to share what has worked (and what hasn’t) in your own parishes.

    During the day we will cover the theology of giving, as well as provide very practical advice on using the Parish Giving Scheme’s new community leaflet, the best way to ask for legacies, stewardship in a rural context, and also give you the chance to have a play with the newest contactless giving devices.

    We’ll be meeting 10am to 2.30pm. Lunch included, so booking is essential:
