Bishop Stephen’s Lent Challenge 2020 God’s Creation

A Gift or a Loan?

Lent Challenge 2020 is about the planet, creation and life, and how we act as stewards of God’s World. Viewed from space, the earth is seen as a beautiful blue planet, full of life and diversity. It is a great gift and as people, we are stewards of the planet for all life forms living and inhabiting the earth, on land, in sea and air.

It is undoubtedly under threat in 2020, and there are significant groups who are working tirelessly to make sure we take steps to save the planet from pollution and misuse. Many of these groups are children and young people, who have a voice in so many ways. We are seeking to work with all children and staff in our schools to think and reflect about the concept of God’s Creation – A gift or a loan?

Please join us in this important challenge and hear the voices of children and young people in the future of our planet. Download the pdf here.

We are home to 85 schools and academies within the Diocese of Ely, located in Cambridgeshire, from Norfolk to South Suffolk, Peterborough to Newmarket and Wisbech to Babraham.

We have over 15,000 learners of all faiths and none.

We are highly aspirational, and set high standards of attainment for all our students enabling them to be the best they can be and have high hopes for their futures.

I have come so you may have life in all its fullness

John 10:10
