2012 has been a great year of advancement and change for Stewardship. As December draws to an end, I wanted to take a moment to look at the highlights of 2012 and to thank you for journeying with us this year.

The highlights:

  • 40acts (our award-winning Lent challenge) gathered a 5000-strong community of generous folk all over the world, resulting in an estimated 200,000 acts of kindness carried out during Lent.
  • Stewardship launched give.net earlier in the summer, and so far £123,665.00 has been donated to causes across the world.
  • We had the privilege to meet many of you at a range of summer events in the UK and at Christian Worker Training Days in the Stewardship offices.
  • The Christmas Tree, our award-winning advent treasure hunt, was refreshed for its second year of festive and poignant generosity...
  • ...and as an added bonus, the world didn't end today after all!

In 2013, we’ll be shouting about give.net from the rooftops and looking forward to the third year of 40acts, which looks set to be absolutely brilliant (even if I do say so myself). We’ll also be welcoming Charlie Osewalt to the Stewardship team. Charlie’s job will involve developing and producing resources on generosity, money and stewardship – so watch this space!

As ever, thank you for partnering with us to give and receive. From all of us here at Stewardship, we hope you have a blessed and joyful Christmas, and we look forward to serving you in 2013.

Interesting final comment. Surely as Christians we are looking forward to the end of this age, to the return of Jesus, to the end of all suffering and the time when Charities are no longer needed!
