Use your harvest service to support your local foodbank

Bishop Paul lends his support to our annual campaign to support those in need.

The Bishop of Liverpool is encouraging parishes and schools to use their harvest services to help support their local foodbank. This is something we have encouraged over the last few years with a great response from across our diocese.

Bishop Paul said "Harvest reminds us that we worship a bountiful God and that we are freely given what we need. This in a world where as Gandhi said there is enough for everyone’s need, but not for everyone’s greed. I know over many years churches and schools have responded to God's generosity though their donations to Foodbanks. This summer has shown us the need is greater than ever and so I want to encourage all churches and schools in our diocese to use this harvest to support their local Foodbank. In this way we can start to make a bigger difference to so many”
