Stimulating Giving

•Helping to achieve sustainable finances in your Church•

This is a training event focused on developing good practice around the theme of giving and stewardship. One of the three goals we are considering in the Diocese of York is “Sustainable Finances”. No doubt each Church would like to achieve this goal.

At this event we will hear from clergy in the Diocese whose Churches have held successful giving initiatives in the last 18 months. They will speak about their hopes and fears as they set about this and how a positive outcome was achieved.
