Do 40acts 2017 as part of a group!
Whether you're a family, church, small group, youth group or school, 40acts for groups provides you with online and printable resources to guide you through a generous Lent as a community.
The new theme for the church resources in 2017 is 'Romans 12 - A Living Sacrifice'. Throughout the series (which is designed to complement the individual 40acts challenge), your church will examine what it means to give your best: when it's hard, when it hurts, with excellence.
FOR CHURCHES: sermon notes, prayers and worship suggestions for a complete church service. *NEW ADDITIONAL RESOURCES FOR 2017* - We've created a complete community project planning guide that will help steer your church before, during and after 40acts - and we've also partnered with Messy Church to create a one-off service.
FOR SMALL GROUPS: bible studies, worship suggestions, discussion questions and prayers.
FOR FAMILIES: interactive family resource (digital download, or purchase the book with stickers for £7.50), in partnership with GodVenture. Includes a family wallchart and - new for 2017 - a 40acts Survival Kit.
FOR SCHOOLS: a pack of assemblies (two new for 2017), lesson plans & materials for KS1 Infants and KS2 Juniors, family wallchart, School Challenge Cards (The challenge cards are linked to British Values. Taking part in 40acts will create a generous community and contribute to your SMSC agenda.)
FOR YOUTH GROUPS: leader’s notes, icebreakers, quizzes, bible studies, activities and reflection points for ages 11-14 and 15-18, in partnership with Urban Saints.
