We’re publishing this short blog to update dioceses and churches on plans for some of our early 2020 campaigns:
On 12 January 2020 (Plough Sunday), our Everyday Faith discipleship campaign will begin, offering reflections and prayers to help Christians find and follow God in everyday life. Like #FollowTheStar, the campaign will include an app, social media posts, daily emails, audio, and a 21-day reflection booklet from Church House Publishing written by Nick Shepherd, Mark Greene and Rachel Treweek, with an introduction from the Archbishop of Canterbury.
#LiveLent: Care for God’s Creation: Lent Campaign for 2020
The #LiveLent campaign for 2020, starting on Ash Wednesday, February 26, has been inspired and informed by the Archbishop of Canterbury’s 2020 Lent Book, Saying Yes to Life by Ruth Valerio (SPCK). Produced jointly by the Digital and Church House Publishing teams, it aims to build on the success of previous Lent campaigns, including #LentPilgrim in 2019, which had an overall online reach of nearly seven million.
In December, Church House Publishing is releasing two versions of #LiveLent: Care for God’s Creation – A 40-Day Challenge. The pocket-sized booklet for adults includes short daily readings and reflections, and the one for children/families focuses on a daily challenge, with weekly readings and prayers. Both booklets are introduced by the Archbishops and mirror the weekly themes of Saying Yes to Life. Free digital access to the daily reflections will be available via an app, social media and e-mail.
