40acts is a campaign from Stewardship that encourages you to do Lent generously.

40 days, 40 reflections, 40 simple acts.

Lent is usually about ‘giving stuff up’, isn’t it? What if you could add something transformational to the traditional?

What if you could give up chocolate and give the money to your favourite charity? What if you could turn the TV off and spend more time helping your neighbour? What if your Lent, this year, was a preparation for a lifetime of big-heartedness?

When Lent begins on 22 February, you’ll be able to go to http://www.40acts.org.uk and pick’n’mix from a choice of 40 simple, generous, actions. Whether you’d like to ‘Buy more fairtrade’, ‘Make a cake’ or ‘Say thank you’, you’ll be given 40 nudges in a generous direction. And when you’ve done it – you can let the world know by clicking on the ‘I’ve done it!’ button!

The 40acts blog will feature daily contributions from likes of Nicky Gumbel (Alpha course), Rob Parsons (Care for the Family), Andy Frost (Share Jesus International), Andrea Boden (Romance Academy),  Ram Gidoomal (South Asian Concern), the Bishop of Bangor and errr…me!
