Your Lent Resource
Everything you need for Lent 2022
New for 2022
The Church Army Lent Resource has been designed to give you, your small group or your church space and time each day throughout Lent to listen to God, reflect on the Bible, and see how and where you can listen to His leading in your actions and attitudes.
Each pack contains 40 beautiful cards divided into Action Cards, Character Cards, and Reflection Cards and Marks of Mission Cards.
These cards include a relevant passage from Scripture, and a question for you to reflect on over the next few days to challenge yourself in your faith life. They focus on stories of faith in action from Church Army’s Centres of Mission near where you are
These cards focus on the faith story of people from the Bible, themes in their story, and signpost to where you can read more about each character.
These cards prompt you to read a Psalm, and to use that Psalm as a doorway to prayer for the day. The focus of these cards is, as the name suggests, more reflective than the other cards.
Marks of Mission Cards
These cards take one of the Marks of Mission and encourage you to ask questions about your church’s way of expressing that Mark. The first is an introduction to the Marks, so don’t worry if you haven’t come across them before.

Can I take part without buying a Lent Resource pack?
Absolutely! We want as many people as possible to engage with God and reflect on sharing their faith this Lent, that’s why we’re running the Lent Resource as an email campaign completely free of charge! Sign up here and please do share this link across your church, deanery and diocese!
Knowing the wonderful ministry Kinder and Gina in Sheffield are doing so well I was smiling as I read the verses for today. 25 years ago these verses were given to me at my Commissioning. I have kept the card in my wallet and have used it’s example and basis in all my ministry as an evangelist wherever I’ve been posted. #LentResource
“This resource is intended to be easy to use, beautiful to look at, and to be an encouragement to listen to God through Lent inspired by stories of faith in action taken from Scripture and from communities across the UK and Ireland. Whilst you can buy the set of cards you can also subscribe free to receive email reflections throughout Lent. We want everyone who can to be able to join in and to be blessed in their journey with us through Lent!”
The Church Army Lent Resource is beautifully creative, brilliantly engaging, and a gentle balance of action, learning, reflection and prayer. I pray that thousands of people will find it a hugely helpful resource for Lent 2022.
