Many church leaders will be on the lookout for materials ahead of Easter in March 2024.

The Trussell Trust offer Lent courses founded on the reality of hardship people face day-to-day and will facilitate  conversations on social justice and how close this is to God’s heart. A course like this is a great way to spend the six weeks building up to Easter, so if you are looking for a way to encourage your church to take action for social justice, or join with our vision of ending the need for food banks, this could be just for you.

They offer two ways to do this with your church:

  • A Shared Journey Lent Course follows the stories and reflections of some of their Lived Experience Partners. The course ends by looking at their Essentials Guarantee campaign, and the concrete ways congregations or small groups can take action to call for a more just society.
  • Values Lent Course which you can run if you have already used their A Shared Journey resource. This course also ends with a session on the Essentials Guarantee.

If you have any questions or need some ideas of how pass these on in your own church context, please reach out to churches@trusselltrust.org.
