Newcastle Diocese Generosity Week starts this Weekend!

This Sunday 26th October, the first ever Newcastle Diocese Generosity Week begins. This is a new diocesan wide event which allows us the opportunity to spend eight days collectively focusing on nurturing, encouraging and celebrating generosity. A series of daily podcasts, reflections and activities will be available to help us reflect on God’s generosity, and activate it in our daily lives. Podcasts are available to listen to and download from all major podcast platforms including Apple, and Spotify. Please share with your church, family, friends and on social media.

Easyfundraising - feel good shopping

To help foster generous giving all year round, we work in partnership with fundraising website easyfundraising. Nearly 80 churches across our diocese are already using easyfundraising and have taken a share of over £5,000 in donations, which are now being used towards repairs, running costs, mission projects and many more things.

easyfundraising will be holding an information session online, exclusively for our Diocese at 1pm on Wednesday 13th October, where they will share lots of hints and tips on how you can make the most of this type of fundraising in the coming months. The session is free and one lucky attendee will win a £25 donation for their church! Please register using this link. Click here to find out more about easyfundraising.
