Resources for Lent 2024
Join a Gaza Ceasefire Pilgrimage, find a World Day of Prayer service near you, and other actions to take in Lent.
Gaza Ceasefire Pilgrimages
This Lent we are pleased to support and encourage you to join a Gaza ceasefire pilgrimage and walk in prayerful solidarity with the people of Gaza.
There are currently pilgrimages being planned in 82 cities across 12 countries. In the UK plans are underway in Birmingham, Liverpool, Aldershot, Nottingham, Oxford and Somerset. You can find a full list of events and how to contact the organisers here: GCP: Cities – Public – Google Sheets
This initiative is being supported by a number of Palestinian organisations, including Bethlehem Bible College, Christ at the Checkpoint, and our partners FOSNA, Friends of Sabeel Australia and others.

World Day of Prayer 2024 – 1st March
“I beg you, bear with one another in love”
This year we are delighted that the World Day of Prayer resources are focused on Palestine, and written by Palestinian Christian women.
There will be services to attend all over the country. To find your nearest, please click here: Services – World Day Of Prayer (wwdp.org.uk)
You can also download many excellent resources from the World Day of Prayer website, including the service booklet. Please see here for all the resources available: 2024 WDP Resources to download – World Day Of Prayer (wwdp.org.uk)
This is a great opportunity to get Palestine talked about and prayed for in many churches that may not have previously engaged on the issues. If you can go along to your local service, and encourage others to do so that would be wonderful!
Whilst we haven’t produced any Lent resources specifically for 2024, we would like to encourage you to revisit some of our previous years’ resources, which are still available and relevant.
In 2022 we produced our Lent series ‘Cry for Hope’ featuring 5 webinars with Palestinian and international speakers and a study guide for small groups. The topics covered included ‘Why was Cry for Hope written’, ‘The Christian community in Palestine’, ‘Is Israel an apartheid state?’, ‘Is it true you cannot follow the Gospel and support the oppression of the Palestinian people’ and ‘Why is it a Cry for Hope?’
You can download and access the Study Guide here: Cry for Hope Lent Study Programme Final
