Pre-Generosity Week Clinics 2024

Generosity Week 2024  is fast approaching, and whether your church is using this particular week to explore giving and generosity, or some other time of year, the Generous Giving Team would like to invite you to our latest clinic days being held this summer.

Clinics will take place between 9.30am and 4.30pm at Church of the Good Shepherd, Battle Hill and on Monday 15th July and St Columba’s Church, Wideopen on Thursday 18th July

The team will be running individual sessions over the course of each day, covering a variety of topics detailed below. Attendees are welcome to join as many or as few sessions as they wish but all sessions must be booked in advance using the booking links. 

Tea, coffee and biscuits will be provided but if you're staying for the full day we recommend bringing a packed lunch or buying lunch locally.
