The Clewer Initiative is producing a new resource for Lent 2023 which will be available to download from our website in early January.

Journeys will be based on the “Stations of the Cross” and through five mini films and an accompanying devotional resource, it will take churches and individuals on a journey, challenging them to take action against modern slavery and not be a bystander. It can be used in in-person small groups, individual study or online.

The five-week Lent resource will study some of the themes from the "Stations of the Cross" and includes a reflection, prayer, discussion questions, and suggestions for action.

Through the devotional, we will consider the suffering faced by victims of modern slavery, explore a variety of ways in which we can help or respond, face up to the call to weep for ourselves and our own complicities, and share in celebrating the miracle of new life as victims begin to emerge from the darkness of being buried out of sight.

The films will include interviews with church members, experts and community leaders who have done significant anti-slavery work. They will highlight the journeys that they have been on to deliver their work. We hope these case studies will inspire and equip others to take similar steps forward.

Like our previous Lent course, Women in the Shadows, each film will start with a victim’s story, spoken by actors and actresses, and highlighting a different aspect of modern slavery.
