Generosity is at the heart of our faith. We believe in a generous God and our own generosity is a testament and hallmark of our faith in action. Every day we see generosity in our churches and Christian communities, reflecting the generous God we believe in.
Generosity Week is an opportunity to celebrate the generosity that has helped us through these difficult times, reflect on God’s generosity to us and explore how we can grow generosity in our churches. It starts with a Sunday focussed on the theme of 'generosity' and ends with a Sunday looking at 'gratitude'.
The Church of England will be running a national online Eucharist to celebrate generosity on Sunday 25 September 2022.
Generosity Week can happen at any time in the year, but it can be scheduled to coincide with your Harvest Festival celebrations, between August and October.
The National Giving Team will be offering a newsletter for a limited time only to help you get ready for Generosity Week 2022. It's very short, and if you sign up here, you'll receive it every Wednesday until the end of September ... and then it will stop!
National Resources include...
If you wish to combine Generosity Week with an opportunity for people to review their giving, we have created some additional editable resources which you can download, adapt and use:
