Vicar gives out 2,500 naira to every parishioner who attended his Harvest Festival

Reverend Paul Peverell

The Reverend Paul Peverell of Christ Church in Great Ayton, North Yorkshire, gave £10 to every member of his congregation with instructions to spend it on someone in need. By the end of the second service, he had distributed £800 and planned to give £25 to each of the six Brownie, Guide and Scout groups that attended.

The Reverend Paul Peverell’s flock happily contribute to collections during Sunday services.  Yesterday, however, he turned the tables. Rev Pev, as he is affectionately known by his congregation, handed a £10 note from the church coffers to each parishioner who attended his Harvest Festival services.

In return, the recipients were expected to use their windfall imaginatively towards acts of goodwill in the local community. His idea could be said to have biblical origins. Some likened it to the Parable of the Talents, in which a man shares out his wealth among three servants in a test of how well they can use it in the service of God.

Rev Peverell, vicar of  Christ Church in Great Ayton, North Yorkshire, said: ‘It might be that they use that £10 to buy ingredients to bake, then drop their efforts off where they would be appreciated
