This day seminar will look at the most effective way to preach and teach on generosity and giving. We will explore our own attitudes towards money, giving and generosity, and how they have been shaped. We will also learn about the different approaches and perspectives that members of our congregation may have. We will then explore different giving programmes to see how we can encourage generosity and giving effectively within our different traditions and contexts. Finally, we will develop generous giving plans for your parish or benefice.
Jonathan de Bernhardt Wood is the generous giving adviser for the Diocese of Oxford, and has an MA in applied theology from the University of Exeter. His book on giving, The Porcupine Principle, is published by the Directory of Social Change.
