Living Our Faith
The benefit of Living Our Faith has played a significant role in the growth and spiritual enhancement of our Diocese. On behalf of the Living Our Faith Stewardship Committee, with the allocation of the funding now complete, we are pleased to officially close out our work.
In raising over £13 million, surpassing our initial goal by 45%, it has been both humbling and an honour to disperse this funding over the past decade. Reflecting the spirit of the Committee, we hope we have been good stewards of your kindness. Christian Stewardship teaches us that we are to receive God’s gifts graciously, cultivate them responsibly, share them lovingly in justice with others, and return them with increase to the Lord.
In this Impact Report, the Committee and I are delighted to provide an overview of the funding allocation and more importantly share some of the tangible outcomes. This Impact Report is the culmination of many core qualities of our clergy and laity – generosity, dedication, hard work and foresight.
I want to take this opportunity to wholeheartedly thank everyone who was involved in giving, praying, planning and volunteering. A special ‘thank you’ to the Living Our Faith Stewardship Members who have monitored and overseen the disbursement of funds in accordance with the original intent.
Yours in Christ, Canon Simon Thomson
Living Our Faith Stewardship Committee Chairperson
