Lent Event 2019: Building Hope, Ending Poverty

- Community Announcement -

The Lent Event 2019 theme is “Courage in a Fearful World”.

The Lent Event aims to encourage people to live simply, with a call to give up something from daily life in solidarity with people who have less, while donating or fundraising to support projects that build hope and end poverty.

This year the focus is on Australia’s near neighbour Timor Leste, the poorest nation in South East Asia, where malnutrition and death from diseases like tuberculosis is very high and violence against children is common, because families have grown up with abuse as part of everyday life, a legacy of the conflict that is our history.

The tiny Protestant Church of Timor Leste (IPTL) a long term Uniting Church partner, is only 2% of the population yet punches well above its weight. The church trains leaders and Sunday School teachers, educates communities in health care and runs schools. Their vision is nothing less than the transformation of their country, built on faith, forgiveness and courage.

    Fergus Maximus

    Fergus Maximus is that bloke with his headphones on long after the playlist has finished, completely oblivious because there’s always music in his head anyway. His unapologetic pop songs encompass all the important things: love, loss, mistakes, surprises and people’s astonishing capacity to miscommunicate. In Ferg's engaging, melodic storytelling you'll find some extraordinary snapshots from an ordinary life.
