Encouraging Generosity

I came that they may have life, and have it abundantly

John 10.10

We believe in a geneous God and our own generosity is a testament and hallmark of our faith in action. The ministry and mission of our parishes is largely funded through the incredible generosity of those who give to their local church.

Living generously is first and foremost a part of our everday faith and discipleship. Giving to our local church isn't about paying the bills or averting a financial crisis, it's about responding to our call to love our neigbour and share the Good News. Generous giving helps to generate income to support the mission and ministry of our parishes in our collective service to God. In order to build a generous church, we need to create the right environment and cultivate the right culture for giving.
