Giving to St Olave’s Church

Generosity in the Parish of York, St Olave with St Giles


Giving God, we receive so much from you,
and therefore have much to give. Help us
to share in the blessings of giving as well as
the happiness of receiving, that your love
may be more widely shared, through Jesus
Christ our Lord. Amen.

Generous Living

Sharing our Gifts Generously

As Christians, we believe that all we have and all we are is given as a gift from God. Each of us are blessed in a variety of ways, and we are called to use these to bless others. These blessings are acts of generosity, giving of ourselves as an outpouring of love to enable God’s mission. Like with any gifts we are given, in gratitude we are invited to respond to God’s grace with our own giving. As a discipleship commitment, it is important that we regularly review what we give, and increase our giving where possible. This helps us to maintain the value of our gifts, and helps us to grow the work of our church in the community. You can read more about generosity in the Parish of York, St Olave with St Giles in our Generous Living leaflet.
