Lent Challenge

During Lent Christians prepare to celebrate God's redemption of the world in Jesus at Easter. Traditionally as Christians we are encouraged to 'give up' some luxury for lent but this year we are preparing to follow the Church of Englands programme called Live Lent
Live Lent is a 40 day challenge which encourages us to to Care for God's Creation by exploring the urgent need for humans to value and protect the abundance God has created. We are also called to care for our brothers and sisters all over the world who face having their families uprooted and their livelihoods destroyed by the effects of climate change.
We have compiled a 40 day calendar which will give you some ideas and thoughts for this important time. There are ideas for us to help our wildlife and environment. Perhaps you could consider giving something up as well to help the environment: maybe you could forgo single use plastics, use less water or save electricity by turning off lights. If many of us do little things, they can add up to make a big difference. No doubt you have heard it all before but are you taking action?
Will you join us in Shrinking the Footprint? Wednesday 26th February - April 9th 2020!
