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 Church of England has produced a number of resources to help you, which you can access here. They have produced a walkthrough of the resources available on that page, organised into five stages, which is linked here.
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:
If you would like to sign up to receive the daily podcast together with the reflection and activity, please use the link here where you will also see the option to sign up for our Blackburn Diocesan Daily Prayer email.
