This Harvest, we’re encouraging you to reflect on the ways God abundantly provides and how we can share our blessings with those in our society who have less. Check out all our great Harvest resources.
Make a gift to Church Urban Fund that will help more communities and lives across England flourish. For every £1 donated we work to multiply this and raise further funds to provide £4.50 of support.
Pray. We believe that prayer brings change and is one of the most powerful resources we have. Use our resources here to help you get started.
Hold a fundraising event so that more people can share their blessings with those who need it most. We’ve got lots of great resources and ideas to help you get started.
Start a food collection in your church or community group for the local foodbank.
Do you have lots of clothes and objects lying around the house? Donate them to the local charity shop.
Volunteer- share your time and talents, and help others. Check out the volunteer opportunities in Birmingham, Lancashire, Middlesbrough, Newcastle and Nottinghamshire here.
Make time for friends and family. Sometimes simply sharing your time with those closest to you is all that is needed.
Find out more about your local area and some of the initiatives helping those most in need. Is there a Joint Venture in your diocese? Find out here and how you can get involved.
These are just some ideas to help reflect on God's blessings during Harvest. We'd love to hear any stories of how God has blessed and provided for you, or any other ideas you have on the topic. Please send us your messages.
