Adventures in Generosity

The occasionally coherent ramblings of a Stewardship Advisor in the Church of England

Hot off the press

Parish Giving Officers newsletter finally put to bed. 

A lot of the time managing PGO’s is a bit like blogging.  I try and produce something engaging, informative and attractive.  I sweat over phraseology, is it accesible ? is it trite ? does it inform, inspire and encourage.  Then when it’s finished off it goes out into the world and possibly straight into the bin. 

Parish Giving Officers are after all volunteers, with lives of their own (not to mention the several lives they are probably trying to manage at church – people who say yes invariably have umpteen other voluntary duties).  Whilst I sit here agonising that not enough parishes keep me informed about what they’re up to, it’s easy to forget that the parishes probably have better things to be doing than sending regular updates on their stewardship campaigns to me.

So, for what it’s worth, here it is. Parish Funding News Issue 1 September 2010. Hope you enjoy it, thanks for reading and, if you get a minute – give me a call – I’d love to hear what you’re up to and what is more, I need to nick your ideas !
