As you design your programme fish around in this last pool of resources. In each case, planning groups will need to consider whether this material will enrich the programme. Particular attention should be paid to Thanksgiving Sunday, which, while not essential, serves three purposes that should be considered.

In addition to Thanksgiving Sunday, this section provides additional resources on Harvest Festival, a factor to consider in the autumn programme, a financial presentation to the congregation and guidance on the offering of lay testimony to complement the preaching and teaching.
