News from the Anglican Giving Review

2,000 Anglicans were surveyed between July-September 2020 on giving perceptions and practice. Anglicans were defined as those who consider themselves as active supporters of the Church of England and attend church at least once a month.

The survey shows that simple things can be done quickly and easily to encourage giving, and so grow the ministry and mission of the church. The survey will be repeated every two years to track the impact of the National Giving Strategy on giving within the Church of England.

In Leeds, we recommend:

  1. Parishes hold a Giving Review every year.
  2. Parishes use the Parish Giving Scheme as the 'preferred way to give' to church.
  3. Clergy and church leaders engage with Generous Giving Training with the National Giving Team and the Diocesan Stewardship and Income Generation Team training and drop-in sessions on all relevant topics.


We are also giving talks to parishes, deaneries and clergy groups about the survey and about ways to grow generous churches. Would you like us to speak to your group? Contact Becky or Janet now to make an appointment. Our details are below.
