Generosity Week 2023 runs from Sunday, September 24th to Sunday, October 1st. Here you'll find lots of resources to help you join in.

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. You may wish to use all the resources available or just a selection.


To help you start promoting Generosity Week and begin planning, see this year's summary of the resources that will be provided, along with four easy steps to get you started.
