Advent Sleepout Challenge 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. The Advent Sleepout Challenge is back for a third year! During Advent, people all over England 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. The Advent Sleepout Challenge is a great way to do something really special during the build up to Christmas. Over the past two years 175 sleepout events have been held and raised over £165,000 to give hope to the homeless and marginalised. Join the Advent Sleepout Challenge this year to help transform even more lives and communities. Express your interest in participating on the Advent Sleepout Challenge website!
