Inspirational Generosity

calendar16 May 2013

Matt Barlow's avatar Matt Barlow

I've worked at CAP now for 14 years and God has taught me loads of lessons about faith but He's also taught me about the importance of generosity.

I've discovered that when I am generous, or when we as an organisation are generous we model something of God. As we live out our calling to bring God's flavour to this world, one of the ways we can do that is through our generosity. When I'm generous with my praise to a staff member, they experience something of God. When the fruit baskets arrive in our head office, they experience God's generosity. When our clients have no food in and we buy them some chocolate biscuits, or even a real fresh chicken as well as the basic essentials, they experience something of God. 

But you know it's a challenge making decisions like these when running a charity, we have to be careful how we spend our money, as most of it is given by people, who themselves are being generous to help us help the poor. Constantly we have to ask ourselves "What is the right level of generosity to this staff member/ client family etc in light of the fact this money has been given?" I'm confident however that our supporters believe in generosity, they believe that we are called to not only do the minimum in our care of clients, staff and volunteers, but to express God's heart of generosity in all that we do. 

Do we want the world to be a more generous place or less? Well let it start with us.

CAP and BigChurchDayOut

CAP and BigChurchDayOut

I spent many years travelling the world with Delirious and during that time, I got to see that the Church has all kinds of expressions, shades and colours. As I developed the idea of BigChurchDayOut, I was passionate about reflecting this diversity and so one of the key values of our vision is inclusion.

I wholeheartedly believe in the statement ‘together we are better’. Large events such as BigChurchDayOut can hugely impact small churches, giving them a real sense of belonging to the huge movement of people that make up the Church and encouraging them that they have a significant part to play in seeing the transformation in our nation that we all pray for.

BigChurchDayOut has partnered with CAP because we love what they do, what they stand for and the difference their work is making to so many people in poverty. We have a responsibility to use the platform of BigChurchDayOut to celebrate and cheer on the amazing things that God is doing in this nation right now and there couldn't be anyone better to do that for than CAP. 

To see transformation in individuals, in our churches and in our nation, we need to work together. That’s why it is important that both individuals and churches make it a priority to partner with CAP, because together we are better!

Tim Jupp currently heads up the team that runs the UK's fastest growing Christian festival, the Big Church Day Out. Before this, Tim spent 17 years as the keyboard player with the band Delirious?, managing the band for its last four years, and established and became Managing Director of Furious Records.

Tim is married and lives in Sussex with his wife Becca, who is the senior leader of their local Church. Arun Community Church, They have four teenage children.
