There’s still time to do something amazing this Advent…but the clock is ticking!
Join people all over England sleeping out with friends, families, churches and community groups in spaces transformed into Advent ‘stables’. This could be in churches, community halls, scout huts or even garden sheds. Come together, have fun and raise sponsorship money that will help Church Urban Fund reach out to some of England’s most marginalised people.

The Advent Sleepout so far…
We’re pleased to share with you that over 50 events are already being organised across England!
One Advent Sleepout organiser, Sarah, has taken the challenge because she’s passionate about raising funds and awareness of the issues of poverty. She’s also looking forward to building a real stable with her friends! You can read more about Sarah’s Sleepout Challenge and other sleepouts in the sleepout challenge blog.
Cathedral Sleepouts: Imagine spending the night in a cathedral? For some this is about to become a reality as Norwich, Ely and Christ Church Cathedral open their doors for the Advent Sleepout Challenge!
