The National Giving Team

We equip dioceses and parishes with the tools and knowledge to create the best environment for giving and generosity in their churches.

We are delivering the National Giving Strategy which focuses on the following priorities:

  1. Enabling more churches to be supported by diocesan giving advisors
  2. Embedding digital giving within over 50% of parishes 
  3. Improving support, guidance and training for clergy, parishes and dioceses.

Watch the short video below for an introduction to the Building a Generous Church model which underpins our work.
