Since 1986, Bishops of Southwark have called the parishes of the Dioces to a time of prayer and contemplation, through the Lent Call.
Over the years, these appeals have raised nearly £1,000,000 which has been shared with more than 150 projects, both in our own Diocese and in other parts of the Anglican Communion.
This years' Lent Call will support projects in Projects in Zimbabwe, The Diocese of Jerusalem and Projects in the Diocese of Southwark. Each week you can read about each project, the theme for this year is food insecurity.
In Bishop Christopher's pastoral letter introducing this years' Lent Call he says "For many in our communities and Link Dioceses, not having enough to eat is sadly and appallingly now a regular occurrence. I urge you all to pray for those in these situations and to consider prayerfully what you can give to help to support them."
