A new 5-session course prepared by the Clewer Inititive, which can be used individually, in small goups or online. Churches Together in Cornwall will be offering it on Zoom on Monday evenings 7.30-8.30pm – everyone welcome! Register here. NB there will be no session on 14 Mar.

All the materials are available online here. Don’t worry if you can’t attend all sessions, as you can easily catch up online.

Over the last couple of years, The Clewer Initiative has produced a Lent Resource which has been widely used by churches and individuals. This year, we are focusing on children and modern slavery.

Children in the Shadows is a five-week interactive resource for Lent that will help us consider the various forms of child exploitation, the scale of the abuse, and the need for us all to increase our awareness and effective response.

Each session contains definitions, statistics, examples of current good practice, and ways in which individuals and churches can make a significant contribution to extending care and strengthening resilience and resistance in their communities.

There is also a passage of scripture to inspire our response and a prayer to draw our reflections together. Each session concludes with the words of two new hymns, written for The Clewer Initiative by Sheena Evans and Simon Hancock.

We hope you will join with others this Lent in study, reflection, prayer and praise so that God’s kingdom can be proclaimed, and His exploited children find hope and purpose.
