Generosity Week

It takes time, support and prayer to grow a generous culture, reflecting our generous God. This Harvest, the National Giving Team is launching resources for The Generosity Week, to give us the time and space to reflect on God’s generosity and celebrate God’s generosity within our church’s ministry and mission. We hope that by the end of The Generosity Week you will have a deeper understanding of God’s generosity towards us and how we can live more generously in our daily lives. 

You can run The Generosity Week in your church to coincide with your Harvest Festivalany time between August to October. Resources will be available to churches from July:-

  • A Generosity Service: worship materials for two Sundays at the beginning and end of Generosity Week 
  • Guidance showing how to engage the wider community with The Generosity Week 

  • Activities to help your church discover and share its generous stories 

  • A social media and marketing toolkit to help you promote your church’s Generosity Week.
