Building a generous church conference

We were delighted that over 60 Treasurers, Churchwardens, PCC members and Clergy attended the first Diocesan conference on how to improve your church's finances. They were supported by over 30 diocesan staff and volunteers meaning that St Augustine’s was filled with 100 people all united in finding out more about living generously. Our 'Building a generous church' conference was led by Archdeacon Rhiannon King, Inspiring Ipswich and the Diocesan Parish Resources staff and supported by a wonderful team of staff and volunteers. 

On the first very hot day of the year we enjoyed inspiring keynote speeches from:

  • Jonathan de Bernhardt Wood, National Advisor for Giving and Income Generation, Church of England
  • Bridget McIntyre, Social entrepreneur and former High Sheriff of Suffolk
  • The Revd Al Metcalfe, Vicar of St Augustine's Ipswich and Chair of Oasis Centre, Gorton.

This was followed by a selection of nine specialist workshop on topics such as: creating a financial strategy; parish share; giving and generosity dilemmas; financial MOTs; Parish Giving Scheme; running a stewardship campaign; raising money for mission and ministry; church grants and digital giving.
