This Lent course has been developed from the 3 years of Life on the Breadline research as a result of engaging with Church leaders, Christians, and community groups across the UK. It has been designed with Lent 2022 in mind (2nd March to 14th April 2022) but could be used in other years, or for home groups outside of Lent.
The course has 6 sessions which can be followed individually or in a group. Each session follows the same format which is planned to take an hour – combining prayer, a short video, a Bible passage, guided reflections, discussion questions, and take-away actions.
If you’re taking part in the Lent Course as a group, consider having a meal together at the start or end of each session to continue conversations further.
The sessions cover 6 themes:
1. Christian responses to poverty
2. “Love thy neighbour” – poverty and inequality
3. Race, ethnicity, austerity and faith
4. Deficits and assets
5. Housing (in)justice
6. Poverty and structural inequality
