Use our Lenten resources for reflection, prayer and action

The season of Lent is an opportunity to reflect and consider our own preparation for Easter

Lent runs for 40 days before Easter and is part of the Christian calendar. Christians remember and celebrate Jesus' death and resurrection. Some people might give something up during Lent, but not all Christians do.

It’s also an important time for us to reflect on our work, and renew our resolve not to give up being there to listen to, protect and support our country’s most vulnerable young people. Over Lent, there are many ways you and your church, school or group can come together and show your support. However you choose to help us, your support will change children’s lives.

Pray and reflect

Gather with your congregation and church family and remember our country’s most vulnerable children and young people as part of your Lenten reflections.

Celebrate Mothering Sunday

Mothering Sunday, on the fourth Sunday in Lent, is a day of celebration for our mothers, their care and concern for us, and for the love that they give us. It can also be a day to celebrate all those who care for others, and for consideration of those for whom this may be a painful time.
