Regular Giving Resources

In general we recommend talking about generosity and financial giving at least once per year. We also suggest every 2-3 years holding a longer “regular giving campaign” lasting 3-5 weeks.

Below you will find resources to help you plan for teaching about regular giving. We hope to add new content to this page over time to create a library of resources to help you talk about regular giving in your local context. You might also want to look at our page on the Parish Giving Scheme which can be a great way to generate a discussion about regular giving, as well as helping you safeguard your income into the future.

Brand New Preaching Resource

Sometimes it can be difficult to know where to start when planning a stewardship sermon. Our brand new resource looks at five Bible passages with the topic of money and provides suggestions for planning and writing a sermon.

The Generosity Week

A brand new regular giving campaign featuring Sunday to Sunday worship and engagement materials focused on generosity and gratitude. Click here to find out more and access the resources.

With many parishes needing to take a fresh look at their regular giving, the national church have put together a suite of excellent resources to support you.

With a focus on generosity and gratitude, the programme runs over two Sundays with service content packs and example liturgies. This approach takes the form of a traditional request and response regular giving campaign – where you ask your congregation to review their giving in week one and ask them to respond and confirm their gifts in week two – with the benefit of a strong grounding in the bible and in personal faith.

To support this focus on biblical, personal faith the programme includes a Sunday to Sunday morning prayer series to run between the two services, a week of podcasts, and two small/home group sessions.

Other Regular Giving Templates & Preaching Resources

If you are just looking for some guidance on writing a request for regular giving you might want to read through our own guidance paper here. You can also find a series of sermon notes based on the lectionary for harvest time on the national church’s giving pages.

Of particular interest may be a recent case study with St James’ Church in Downley who have worked hard to become a Giving Church and to model generosity. Click here to read their story.

If you are looking for a more holistic programme then there are several outlines available to support you in planning a regular giving campaign.

The National Church has three frameworks for giving programmes:

  1. A Parish Funding Programme (a generic programme)
  2. A Simple Giving Programme (this is more targeted at small and/or rural churches)
  3. Give10 (a programme to introduce tithing)

There are also some popular frameworks which originated in other dioceses and which are free to access. Both of the below focus on responding to God’s generosity and have extensive online resources:

  1. Giving in Grace
  2. Giving is God’s Way

For questions about using any of these resources or other ways to encourage regular giving, please contact the Generous Giving Adviser, Joshua Townson, by email or by telephone on 01865 208 757.

Giving Checklist

The Giving Checklist enables churches to review how effective they are at encouraging giving within the church, during the service, on their website and on social media. We recommend that reviews are undertaken by the PCC, or by a relevant sub-group, such as the stewardship committee.

For help or advice on undertaking a review of your church’s giving, please contact the Generous Giving adviser for the diocese, Joshua Townson, on 01865 208757.
