40 Acts - a Lenten generosity campaign

Visit to participate

Award-winning Lent generosity campaign launches on Ash Wednesday, February 18.  Say thank you, create a generosity toolbox, share a skill and always talk to strangers.  These are just a few of the forty acts of generosity which will feature in 40 acts.

During the forty days of Lent, participants are invited to take part in 40 activities that challenge them to do Lent generously in 2015.

Lent marks a pivotal point in the history of the church, when we remember how Jesus prepared to give himself up as a sacrifice for all humanity.  Traditionally we mark Lent by giving something up, but as an alternative Christians can awaken to a new idea: that we can reflect something of God's incredible generosity on the cross by creating a daily habit of generosity throughout Lent.

Individual participants can sign up to 40 acts via and will receive daily 40acts challenges via email from February 18 to April 4.  Challenges will also be posted on the 40 acts website, and social media sites on a daily basis.
