Doing Lent Generously
40acts is a generosity challenge which invites people to do Lent a bit differently. During the forty days of Lent, 40acts participants will be invited to take part in forty simple acts of generosity which will challenge them to ‘do Lent generously’ in 2018. Lent marks a pivotal point in the history of the church, when Jesus prepared to give himself up as a sacrifice.
Traditionally we mark Lent by giving something up, but what if it could be more than that? What if Lent was a preparation for a lifetime of big-heartedness? Small acts of generosity, performed by thousands of people across the UK and beyond, have the power to make a big change to our communities, to our churches and ultimately, to our world.
Lent begins on 14th February. Follow the link to the Challenge Card and take part in the generosity challenge. Each day, the children select a Challenge Card and see if they carry this out throughout the day.
