40 days of prayer, simplicity and generosity 

22 February – 6 April 2023 

Our world is hurting. Ongoing conflicts, rising poverty and hunger, climate crisis...

We want to make a difference, but it can be hard to know where to start. 

Lent is an opportunity to train our hearts towards compassion, generosity and loving our neighbours. 

To focus on what each of us can do to make a difference. 

Join us for 40 days of prayer, simplicity and generosity for our hurting world. 

How you can make a difference:


Join in prayer for our partners across the globe.


Live Simply

Give up something in solidarity with those who have less. Raise funds to help end poverty and injustice. 


Help resource our partners to fight poverty and injustice in their communities.

Whether you're fundraising or donating, you're making a big difference in the lives of those who need it most.

$25 can provide nutritous food to kids in Timor-Leste.
$50 can give pigs to a family in Indonesia.
$100 can provide job for a person with a disability in Sri Lanka.
$500 can send a girl to school in India.
$1,000 can supply clean water for a village in Papua New Guinea.
