Devon Good Stewards Trust (DGST)

With the encouragement of the Exeter Diocesan Evangelical Fellowship, five lay members of C of E Evangelical churches in Devon are considering the formation of a Good Steward’s Trust, to support the advancement and defence of the Gospel across the Diocese of Exeter.

People who give money in our churches give voluntarily and often sacrificially with the expectation that their money will be used wisely and well; many are very unhappy with the current direction of the Church of England. The aim of the Devon Good Stewards Trust (DGST) is to support churches and individuals in the Diocese of Exeter in their work of preaching and teaching the Christian Gospel, making new disciples who become followers of Jesus Christ.

Two very short papers have been prepared as the basis for a period of consultation that runs until the end of October 2023. Please read these and contribute comments/questions to the team by email to by midnight 31 October 2023.
