Bishops' Lent Appeal


The Bishops’ have an appeal every year during Lent, traditionally to raise money for charitable causes.

The Lent Challenge in 2020 concerned raising awareness of environmental issues and offered a fun way to think about ways in which we can all protect God’s creation.   Bishops Martin and Mike said, "Christians are rediscovering that caring for the creation God brought into being, and which He loves, is a vital part of our mission as well as being an issue of justice"

In previous years:

The Bishops would like to thank all those who contributed to the 2019 Lent appeal for our Link Diocese, Kagera. “We are delighted that you raised "£30,529" to support our brothers and sisters within our link diocese” said Bishop Martin. 

In 2018 the appeal was for local communities and 36 different parishes or benefices donated a total of £11,213 to 47 different charities, a very generous effort and we encourage you to continue this generous support of your local community.
