Generosity Week is coming to the Diocese of Leeds this autumn, helping us all to celebrate the generous love of God.
During Diocesan Generosity Week, running from September 26 through to October 3, churches are invited to hold services, run group sessions, broadcast podcasts, and distribute readings on the theme of generosity to their communities.
Generosity can be shown through everyday acts of kindness that make a huge difference to peoples’ lives.
To encourage these acts of generosity the diocese is also running the Generosity Week Challenge, which will include daily podcasts, reflections and activities.
Generosity Week resources available from the diocese and national church include worship materials for two Sundays at the beginning and end of Generosity Week, guidance showing how to engage the wider community with
Generosity Week, activities to help churches discover and share its generous stories, a social media and marketing toolkit to help promote Generosity Week and tools to help youth groups consider what it means to be generous.
Becky Nicholson, Lead Stewardship Officer, said: “Generosity is a spiritual gift and as Christians we learn about how to grow this gift as faithful disciples of God.
“Generosity week is a perfect time to do just that; church leaders are able to pick from a wide range of different resources and activities which aim to help parishioners and the wider community reflect on what it is to be generous and share God’s gifts with one another.”
