Your Spring Harvest Home update

We’ve been working so hard for the last three weeks to make as much of our planned content available online and it’s open and free for everyone to enjoy. From 11am on Monday 13, playlists will begin to appear on the Spring Harvest YouTube Channel. To find out the latest information about Spring Harvest Home, watch our brand new video here where Abby, from our Spring Harvest Planning Group, talks you through what you can expect next week and how you can get involved.

Programme now available!

We have put together a programme for this year’s Spring Harvest Home. You can view and download the programme directly here. We hope you can join us for some, or all of it! It details everything we have planned over the week, from Big Start to Bible teaching, and more. There really is something for everyone! The programme will also appear on our YouTube channel as either a Premiere or a Live Stream.

‘How to’ Guide

In addition to the programme, we have put together a simple ‘How to guide’ to help you with any tech problems you may encounter. You can view and download the guide here. It details how to subscribe to our YouTube channel, how to turn on subtitles, and much more.

Free Resources download

We’ve put all of the free resources that you might want for Spring Harvest Home in one easy to access place on GoogleDrive. Free for you to use and download, enjoy resources for all ages to help aid worships, teachings and more. You can find these resources here.

Accessibility 

To help with accessibility, absolutely everything will have subtitles. BSL will also be available for the three theme sessions, Bible teachings and the five celebration talks. We’ve made separate videos for this in a playlist called ‘Accessible and BSL’.

Speaker line-up

In true Spring Harvest style, we have a brilliant line-up of fantastic speakers who have helped us plan some really exciting content. They will be sharing worship, teaching and lots of fun activities for all ages. Look out for some great content from:

Big Start – GLOW video

We have been overwhelmed with the response we have had so far to this year’s Big Start video, GLOW. If you haven’t already seen it, you can watch it here, and download and stream the song here and backing track here.

We are also very excited to have produced an accessible version which includes lyric subtitles and BSL sign language interpretations. You can watch the accessible version here.

Now you’ve seen the video, we want to see your Big Start costumes! Take inspiration from our video cast and think, big t-shirts, t-towels, socks with sandals all finished with a bright splash of neon.
