One of the most enjoyable parts of the Bishop’s Lent Call is getting to see the various ways in groups and individuals raise money to give to the causes which we’ve chosen to support. Our schools and churches hold events across the Diocese and, with the help of social media, share them with us. If you’ve got photos of what you did to help support the Bishop of Southwark’s Lent Call, tag us in them on Facebook and Twitter.
For some of our schools, the fundraising efforts culminate in the Lent Call Service held at Southwark Cathedral, where they bring their generous gifts to be received, and perform in the cathedral as part of the worship.
We won’t be closing the books yet, so there’s still time for you to donate. If you’ve not held an event, and want to do so, have a look at southwark.anglican.org/lentcall where you’ll find ideas for fundraisers and information on how to give.
As Lent draws to a close and we prepare to reflect on Jesus’ death and resurrection, please continue to hold in your prayers those people and projects for whom the Lent Call, and the money it raises, can make a real difference.
