In the face of climate change we need urgency, solidarity and faithful action.
We think people of faith have a powerful role to play in meaningful climate action, as well as inspiring hope and courage to face the future.
It’s going to take a movement. Are you in?
Take up a commitment for Lent and fundraise to help mitigate the impacts of climate change on the most vulnerable.
The change we need:
Make a significant change in your life that benefits God’s creation. Keep it up for 40 days and pray it becomes an ongoing habit. When we act, we inspire others to join, spreading hope.
Support vulnerable communities who are fighting to build resilience and mitigate climate impacts. Fundraise during Lent or make a gift to support critical climate action by UnitingWorld's church partners.
Use your voice to influence your community and let our politicians know we need urgent climate action. Help to make sure action doesn’t come at the cost of the already poor and exploited.
Progress to our fundraising goal
Raised so far
We hope to raise $200,000 through Lent Event to fund our partners in the Pacific and Asia who are building resilience to climate change and working to mitigate climate impacts.
The impact you can create
By supporting Lent Event, you're making a real difference in the lives of those who need it most.
$20 can help our partners plant trees to stabilise landslide-prone areas and offset carbon.
$90 can help a family grow their own food garden, cutting down on food miles, improving heath and building resilience.
$250 can help resource a village to take action on poverty, health care and the environment.
$1,000 can help protect whole communities in the Pacific by stocking evacuation centres, securing water sources, and providing life-saving education.
How will you make a difference?
Along the way, hear from theologians and our partners who are passionate about protecting God's creation.

Lent Event for churches
Our world needs people of hope and courage.
Lent Event is about building a movement of collective change and hope. It inspires courageous action across communities in Australia and in the lives of our neighbours around the world.
Doing Lent Event as a church or community group is a powerful way to grow in discipleship and make change in the world. We will live out our calling as followers of Jesus, and we'll put in place practices that affect our lives and the lives of others for years to come.
