40acts for Lent will be back in 2016, with brand new individual challenges and group resources.
We’re making two of the resources – for small groups and churches – available early to assist leaders in their planning. But because the new website is still under wraps, we’re making the downloads available here for your convenience. From December 15th, you’ll be able to download resources for families, youth groups and schools, too.
The new theme for the resources this year is ’Jesus at our table’. Jesus ate with sinners and with church leaders; he ate with thousands and with a child. He invited everyone in and accepted all invitations. Table fellowship meant friendship, peace, acceptance and unconditional love: community. This will be the focus of our seven-week Lenten resources.
Enter your details on the website, and we’ll email the resources directly to your inbox.
We’ve got some great videos to help you spread the word, and very soon we’ll have a new film for 2016. Keep your eyes open!
40acts Together is for anyone that wants to do 40acts as part of a group!
