Lent Event is coming!

You’re invited to a season of prayer, simplicity and generosity to change the world. 22 February – 6 April 2023.

Lent Event is a unique fundraising activity to support the work of UnitingWorld. Over the 40-day season of Lent, give up something to help fight poverty and bring hope and healing to our world.

Lent Event is inspired by a simple but powerful idea:

Every one of us has a role to play in building a world free from poverty and injustice.

But with so much suffering and injustice demanding our attention, where do we begin?

We believe that positive change can start with the everyday choices we make; what we spend our limited time, attention and money on.

Lent Event gives an opportunity to follow in the footsteps of Jesus, choosing to focus our lives on compassion, generosity and love for our neighbours across the world.

How to join in:


Prayer is powerful. Use our prayer guide to pray alongside our partners across the world and be inspired to make a difference. Go deeper and reflect on how to be a good global neighbour through our Bible Study series.

Live simply

During the season of Lent, choose to give up something in solidarity with those who have less (coffee, alcohol, screens, cynicism?) or you could do something to walk more gently on the earth (dust off the bike and leave the car at home? Eat less meat and dairy?) Pick whatever unique activity you like!

Donate the money you would have spent on it to fight poverty and build hope in the world! Better yet, take up a fundraising challenge and get your friends and family to sponsor you.


The money we raise together will help fight poverty and build hope across the Pacific, Asia and Africa through UnitingWorld and our international partners.

We hope you’ll join us. Together we’ll make a lasting difference, inspire others, and the practices we put in place will impact our lives and our world far beyond the 40 days.
