Give it up: What should I give up for Lent?

17 February 2022

Giving up something you really, really enjoy is quite difficult. Lent is a time when we make an act of self-denial to make more room for God in our life. For 40 days, Jesus went to the desert to fast and pray. He was tempted by Satan several times but was able to resist. As we approach lent, we too can take this time to fast. We can fast from a luxury in our lives and give what we save to make a difference to those living in poverty.  

What would you struggle to live without? Is it your phone, your car, or even a chocolate in the afternoon? 

If you can't decide what to give up, or perhaps take up, we can help. Take our Lenten personality quiz to find out what you should give up for Lent.

Work out how much money you save during Lent and donate the sum to our Lent Appeal.

Thank you for your support this Lent. Your gifts will change lives around the world.
