Generosity and Thankfulness Conference 2022

On Saturday 24 September we held our online Generosity & Thankfulness conference with the aim to inspire the development of generosity and thankfulness as part of the mission of every church across our diverse diocese. Building on the success of our first giving conference in 2020, the conference boasted 22 workshops to choose from including the use of online giving and donation devices, green fundraising, communicating generosity and thankfulness, and generating sustainable income. These workshops were run by a line-up of passionate and engaging keynote speakers, including Jonathan de Bernhardt Wood, National Advisor for Giving and Income Generation and Bishop Mark Davies, the Bishop of Middleton.

Hosted on the platform Whova, the workshops were recorded and can now be accessed via the YouTube playlist below:
