Advent Sleepout Challenge Go to THE ADVENT SLEEPOUT CHALLENGE website 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. Advent 2015 saw the first ever Advent Sleepout Challenges take place. This year it's back, bigger and better! Last year we raised a massive £93,450 after 75 events happened in churches and communities across the country. This Advent we are inviting you to take the challenge! Gather your friends, family, church, and community groups to give up a night of comfort by sleeping out. You can even use the Christmas story as inspiration to create your own Advent ‘stable’ and give up a night of comfort; sleeping out with friends, families, church groups, clubs and community groups. Join in the fun by organising your own sleepout as well as find all the resources you need on the Advent Sleepout Challenge website.
