Generous Giving in the Diocese of Oxford

Water into Wine

The Generous Giving team is here to help churches across the diocese embrace a life of Christ-like generosity. We aim to aid you in changing people’s perception of giving to your church with a renewed focus on the Kingdom of God and on your local mission. We can also help you to look at developing the ways people give and how much they give.

The Generous Giving Adviser, Joshua Townson, is available to support you in all of these ways and to discuss any other questions you have about giving and generosity. You can contact him by email or telephone, on 01865 208 757.


And they came, everyone whose heart was stirred, and everyone whose spirit was willing, and brought the Lord’s offering to be used for the tabernacle and for all its service.
