Did you know that give it up revised adLent starts on Wednesday 13 February?

It is a time when the Church traditionally marks the period that Jesus went into the Wilderness to pray and abstained from food and drink for 40 days.

Many Christians will be thinking about giving up something for Lent to as part of their own personal journey to the cross at Easter. We may already be thinking about giving up chocolate, coffee, wine or another little luxury or comfort thing

So here’s a thought. Why not mark this time by giving up a cup of coffee in a cafe and putting the money aside for Storehouse? Or maybe forgoing the odd bottle of wine and turning it into some cans of soups?

You can then have the joy of see these savings turn into Storehouse Emergency foodbags for someone in crisis who has no option but to go without.

It’s easy to get involved.

Simply bring any items along to church or your HOME group or to any of our Storehouse Collection Points in town. Alternatively, you can give a financial  gift. (Please make any cheques payable to Stour Valley Vineyard and write on the back Storehouse.)

If you are from another church or organisation, please contact the SVV Storehouse Team for more details. We’d love to hear from you.

Have fun!
