Please stand with us



Essential Christian is the umbrella charity for Spring Harvest. We are passionate about making space for everyone to encounter God, and passionate about equipping the local church. It is at the core of who we are and what we do. Your generous giving will be used across our ministries and we are so grateful for every contribution.

We are so amazed and very thankful for your generous support with Spring Harvest 2020,  raising a little over £1.5 million enabling us to sustain the ministry and allow us to deliver a Spring Harvest event in 2021 and, by the grace of God, for many years after.

We raise approximately £72,000 each year to enable lower-income individuals and families to come to Spring Harvest with discounts and bursaries. We want to make Spring Harvest accessible to everyone, so far as we can. It would be amazing if we could offer even more for the next event.

We would also love to make Spring Harvest easier to navigate for children and young people with additional needs and adults with accessibility requirements. We are getting better at this and the demand is growing. Technology, equipment and (most of all) people on our teams will enable those with special needs and accessibility requirements to experience all that Spring Harvest offers.

We have an amazing opportunity to make Jesus accessible to children. Big Start Assemblies is a multi-media resource that makes collective worship the best part of the day, sharing Christian values and Bible stories in schools all over the country. We would love to get these resources into more faith and non-faith schools.

These are just a few examples of what Essential Christian is doing and we are very grateful for your support.

Thank you!
