40acts challenges you to do Lent generously
40acts is starting on the 14 February 2018.
Will you be up to making a difference over 40 days, 40 reflections, 40 challenges to make a difference?
Join forces with St Paul's and a global, generous community of over one hundred thousand people who have completed the 40acts challenge during Lent.
How can 40acts help me during Lent?
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.
As well as our group resources for families, churches, small groups, schools and youth groups, we also have a whole host of prayers for Lent that you can read, as well as a list of Lent prayers for children. In order to help your children better understand this wholly significant time of year we also have a section of our website entirely dedicated to facts about Lent, from the different days of Lent to what days like Ash Wednesday mean to the wider community.
If you need any help or guidance through Lent this year, sign up for 40acts, and do Lent generously.
