How our Generous Giving team can support you

Our advisers are here as a resource for the whole diocese. Their roles are to work with clergy and lay people involved in the management and day-to-day life of their churches. Specifically, they can help and support with:

  • Reflecting on and reviewing giving and generosity
  • Developing and designing giving campaigns
  • Attending church events and speaking about generosity
  • Promoting the Parish Giving Scheme and supporting churches with its implementation
  • Supporting with Legacy Giving
  • Offering advice and support on fundraising
  • Offering new equipment to enhance giving e.g. contactless giving units
  • Celebrating financial and other forms of generosity
  • Enabling some churches to work collaboratively to improve generosity and giving.

Each church may need something different so our Generous Giving team are happy to tailor the support that individual churches may need. Andrew and Joanne can come out to your church or you are welcome to visit them at Church House in North Shields. They are very friendly and would love to hear from you!
