Home / Lent Appeal

Every year the bishops of the Diocese of London ask their parishes to consider collecting donations to help a range of good causes. The money donated by our congregations has helped to alleviate the suffering of Christians persecuted in the Middle East; it has funded new schools in Africa and provided fresh water supplies to villages; it has funded youth work and trained people for ministry both in London and much further afield. The focus of the Lent Appeal changes year to year.

The most recent Lent Appeal can always be found at www.london.anglican.org/lentappeal.
