Fictional Rev John and his made up PCC and their imaginary church deal with all the weird and wonderful topics that real people struggle with. A fun and friendly way of introducing ideas and sharing information by means of a sketch, rather than a traditional news article. Feel free to use in your (real) parish magazines.

Crisis Meeting: The Final Chapter

The final chapter is here, with St Someone’s PCC looking back on all they’ve learned and now looking ahead to a brighter, hopeful and generous future. Here’s what any PCC can expect from the Generous Giving Project.

Crisis Meeting: Part 7

St. Someone’s learns about a new way of compiling and celebrating all the ways their parish is generous. They realise how this will help to bless generous givers and encourage more people to get involved. But is it too much work? How does a church even begin?

Crisis Meeting: Part 6

Do we, the church, only talk about giving when we’re appealing for people to do more of it? What could change this perception? They’re about to hear about the Generosity List

Crisis Meeting: Part 4

The Diocesan Officer arrives but it’s a hostile reception from one member. What’s behind Tim’s outburst? Does he have something he needs to get off his chest?

Crisis Meeting: Part 3

Mary has doubts about a long-term generosity approach when they have immediate financial problems. Several members have their own reservations about something else but are too afraid to speak up.

Crisis Meeting: Part 2

Rev John reflects on their approach to stewardship and feels there’s room for improvement. Maybe better communication would make a big difference. Kevin lifts his spirits with his usual, natural very tasty generosity.

Crisis Meeting: Part 1

St. Someone’s is having a special PCC meeting because they’ve run out of money. What will they do? Will they plug the gaps or revolutionise the way they approach discipleship? Could they pin their hopes on the Generous Giving Project?
