There are many ways to give to the work of the Church and at Mid Deeside we are fortunate to have lots of people contributing their time and talent and other resources to help us serve God in our community. We call this Stewardship.
Because of our faith we are grateful to God, and one way to express our thanks is by Giving to the Church which is the Body of Christ in the world and in our parish, doing His work and sharing His message.
Stewardship invites us
- to express our faith by giving;
- to a deeper understanding of the Bible;
- to a place of generosity, gratitude, cheerfulness and hopefulness;
- to think about our priorities in using money; and
- to enable the Church to be the Body of Christ effectively in todays world.
Mid Deeside we have a vision where we grow ourselves and our Church and would like to do more to:
- Nurture faith in young and old alike;
- Reach out to children and their families;
- Deepen our care for our congregation; and
- Increase our support for community groups.

“Were the whole realm of nature mine,
that were an offering far too small;
love so amazing, so divine,
demands my soul, my life, my all.”
