"excel in this grace of giving" (2 Cor. 8:7)

Seasons of giving

If you need a theme for your annual review then look no further. Find here a selection of plug and play resources themed around the seasons of the year plus the option to include Oscar Wilde's beautiful modern parable, The Selfish Giant into your worship. These resources, including a full all age service and themed literature, can be used and adapted as required.  

Other materials

This material complements a Seasons of Giving sermon series found here in the Programme section of Giving in Grace. Clergy and lay leaders may wish to incorporate elements from that sermon series. The resources in this section distill the Seasons theme, adding the story of the The Selfish Giant as a creative way into the biblical material.
