Generosity Week: Harvest

Harvest is a time to gather what we have, a time to thank God for all he has given us, a time to think and reflect on what God is calling us to create. These resources and materials from the National Giving Team can be used over the course of a week during the Harvest season and throughout the autumn to encourage people to live generously - and we're really pleased that York's Generous Giving Adviser, Sammi Tooze, is putting together many of these worship and discipleship materials. We hope your church will join in and share this time to grow our understanding of God’s generosity and how it enriches our daily lives.

The Harvest Generosity Week includes a week of resources running from Sunday to Sunday:

  • 8 daily audio reflection podcasts from a range of voices across the Church of England for your congregation to listen to (available from Parish Resources on 24 September)
  • Service Content Packs with a range of material for service leaders to include in two Sunday services, one focusing on generosity and one on gratitude (available from Parish Resources on 21 September)
  • Liturgy for a week’s Morning Prayer services for services in person or online (available from Parish Resources on 21 September)
  • A small group study session with a guide for leaders, including a biblical reflection and discussion questions based on the material from one of the Sunday services (available from Parish Resources on 21 September)

If you’d like to access the resource, please share the podcast link with your church and download the materials as they become available for free, by clicking here.
