Generosity Gift and Grace Course Materials

Vision 2026 commits us to working towards being Healthy Churches Transforming Communities by

  • Making disciples for Jesus Christ
  • Being Witnesses to Jesus Christ
  • Growing Leaders for Jesus Christ

The Generosity Gift and Grace Course is designed us to help with the Making Disciples strand of the vision, encouraging us to grow as disciples by thinking about giving generously of our time, talents and money to the cause of Christ.

The Generosity Gift and Grace Course contains five sessions, each considering a different aspect of generosity to help local churches and their members think together about what it means to ne generous.  It aims to be practical and enjoyable whilst encouraging us to think more deeply about how we respond to the generosity, gift and grace of God by focussing on:

  • God’s character and God’s generosity to humanity.
  • Being generous people who offer out time and talents to God.
  • Generous giving – looking at money and how we use it.
  • Generosity towards others as our faith shapes the way we live.
  • Church as a 'Generous Family' where we support and care for one another.

Generosity Gift and Grace is a down-to-earth course helping church members think together about how we can respond to the generosity gift and grace of God. Copies are being distributed to all parishes, but you will find links to the following materials below.
