Spring Harvest is an inter-denominational evangelical conference and gathering in the United Kingdom that started in 1979.[1]:245

The festival arose in the late 1970s during a time when the evangelicalism was growing in the UK and there was uncertainty as to how that movement would relate with Church of England and evangelicals within it; the event, among a few others at the time, welcomed all evangelicals,[2]:292-293 including people inside and outside of the charismatic movement.[1]:245 Hylson-Smith comments that non-denominational activities such as Spring Harvest did much to encourage pan-evangelicalism which tended to minimise historical differences between denominations[1]:247

Music from the Spring Harvest has been presented on the BBC programme Songs of Praise.[3]
