Renewal of Giving 2023
Thank you for your generosity.
I have been Dean of Bradford Cathedral for a year and in that time I have been witness to the wonderful work being done. Thousands of people have come to the Cathedral to worship, pray and participate in services and events. People have been enjoying the heritage of the building and its grounds. Hundreds of children have taken part in our education programme and families have attended activity and heritage days. Support of our choristers continues, giving them an opportunity to work together to produce high quality choral music through free music education. None of this would have been possible without your prayers, time, skills and, of course, your kind generosity.
My thanks to you all.
The ministry and mission of The Church of England is largely funded through the incredible generosity of those who give to it. Your regular giving has helped towards the daily running costs for the Cathedral and in turn the Cathedral’s sustainability.
By God’s grace, and with your continued help and prayers, I believe we can continue to achieve wonderful things at Bradford Cathedral in 2023 and beyond.
Our Renewal of Giving scheme is so important. It allows us to plan our ministries carefully, based on the financial commitments of our congregation and supporters. The Renewal of Giving scheme also allows us to express our worship to God through regular and committed giving.
Today I want to ask you to review the amount you give to God’s work here as we seek to grow as a place of worship and welcome to all.
One of the key aims of our new strategy is to become more sustainable in spite of the adverse winds we often feel.
Within this we aim to be financially resilient, seeking, amongst other goals, a year on year increase in regular congregational giving.
With that in mind, we are looking for an additional £5,000 in regular giving income above what was received in 2022.
