The gift of reaching out to our neighbours
The Lenten Offering is an annual event in the life of congregations within the Synod of Victoria and Tasmania. It is conducted during Lent and Easter at a time of reflection, renewal and recommitment.
In response to God’s love for all people and the giving of his son to the world, an opportunity is provided for people of the church to make a sacrificial offering to support important mission projects.
THE 2017 LENTEN OFFERING WILL SUPPORT THE FOLLOWING PROJECTS:
By giving a special Lenten Offering you will be helping meet the real needs of people in our local and global communities and sharing the love of god.
