Resources for Churches

You can run Generosity Week in your church to coincide with your Harvest Festival. As churches celebrate Harvest at different times this could be at any time between August to October. But if that doesn't work for you, don't let it put you off. We are called to be generous 365 days a year, so run it whenever suits you! Take a look below at the various resources your church might use during Generosity Week. All the resources are available on the Church of England website here.
