40acts

Lent is usually about ‘giving stuff up’, isn’t it? What if you could add something transformational to the traditional?

What if you could give up chocolate and give the money to your favourite charity? What if you could turn the TV off and spend more time helping your neighbour? What if Lent was a preparation for a lifetime of big-heartedness that reflected God’s amazing generosity?

Well, that’s where 40acts – the generosity challenge from Christian charity Stewardship – comes in.

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.

As well as their group resources for families, churches, small groups, schools and youth groups, they also have a whole host of prayers for Lent that you can read, as well as a list of Lent prayers for children.

Your acts of generosity could lead to some great conversations this Lent.
