It All About?
Help us give hope to thousands of people across England during Advent.
The Advent Sleepout Challenge is a national, sponsored event to help marginalised people in England transform their lives and communities through the work of Church Urban Fund.
During Advent, people all over England will take the Christmas story as inspiration to create their own Advent ‘stable’ and give up a night of comfort; sleeping out with friends, families, church groups, clubs and community groups. You can join in the fun by organising your own sleepout, and you’ll find all the resources you need in our Sleepout Toolkit to make your event simple to organise, fun and safe.
