Generous Giving

Bishop Paul thanks congregations across the diocese for their generous giving and serving through 2020:

“Thank you for making God’s love real and known in this difficult time, and for your financial giving which has been so generous against the backdrop of such difficult challenges this past year. This giving enables us to sustain and grow the life of the church across the diocese.”

Bishop Paul also invites those who feel prompted and able to consider making a special Christmas gift to their local church, as a way of giving thanks to God for the hope of Jesus this Christmas.
If you would find it easier to make a gift directly to the diocese please follow the link below – any gifts will be used to support the Parish Share that enables the mission of the church in every community. https://southwell.anglican.org/donate
