Stewardship and generosity

Generous giving is an integral part of the discipleship of Christian believers. Giving within the Church and beyond it not only resources God’s mission in the world but also has an impact on our lifestyle.

However, in many of our church communities, we are reluctant to address issues around money and giving. In the Diocese of Bristol, we want to be open and honest about this area of spiritual growth and unlock the generosity of the people of God for the sake of the Kingdom of God.

This is a helpful guide to discerning and articulating your church's vision, building a sound understanding of the theology of generosity, planning a stewardship campaign, and introducing the Parish Giving Scheme.
