Would you like to do something a little more than 'give up' something for Lent? Why not take the '40acts' challenge this year?

Take the 40acts challenge! Join 100,000+ people on a 40-day mission to impact their local community.

Are you looking to do something a little more than just 'give up' something for Lent?  Have you heard about '40acts' the annual generosity challenge for Lent, created by UK Christian charity, Stewardship? 

For seven years, 40acts has asked a question: what if Lent could be about more than just giving stuff up? What if it could be a time of radical generosity as well as spiritual discipline?

Lent is one of the most important times of year for many Christians around the world, particularly those within the Anglican, Catholic and Orthodox traditions, held at a similar level of importance to Advent – the build up to Christmas.

Different people observe Lent in different ways, though by and large most people do this by giving something up for Lent. Whether you’re intending to give up chocolate, fast food, alcohol, or the Internet, 40acts encourages you to do something generous during Lent, too.

You can sign up to take the challenge here and find out more by visiting:  https://40acts.org.uk/
