Bishop David came to view the Lent Challenge entries and sign the 2017 certificates
Twenty schools submitted entries for the Lent Challenge 2017 after spending the season thinking particularly about refugees. The time and commitment spent on the challenge by participating schools was impressive. The original challenge materials can still be found below..
Each year, Bishop Stephen issues a Lent Challenge to our schools.
Schools which successfully complete the challenge receive a gold, silver or bronze award according to the commitment they have shown in observing Lent.
In 2017 Lent begins on 1st March – Ash Wednesday
Powerpoints for use in RE or Collective Worship:
The powerpoints below were too large for the capacity of the website and have been put up as pdfs. You should be able to use them on a screen in this form, but please e-mail email@example.com if you would like an actual powerpoint copy.
If you want to create your own weekly certificates for completing a challenge you can use the templates here:
To receive your certificate from Bishop Stephen at the end of Lent send in the details of what you have done as an annotated powerpoint or booklet to Shirley Hall at the Diocesan Office. We would like to put some of these materials up online – so please do not send us any photographs that we cannot use for safeguarding reasons.
