Matthew 25 Challenge

Deepen your church's heart for the poor

What is the Matthew 25 Challenge?

The Matthew 25 Challenge is an immersive, family-friendly activity that will challenge and bring together your church, youth group, and home groups too. You are invited to take part in six weekly or daily challenges, bringing to life Jesus’ call in Matthew 25:35-40.

With constant news headlines putting refugees very much on our hearts and minds, here’s a way that your church can glimpse the realities that many children and communities around the world face.

"whatever you did for one of the least of these brothers and sisters of mine, you did for me"

Matthew 25:40 (NIV)

Your whole church will have a chance to grow in discipleship by learning, reflecting, praying and undertaking the six challenges. This could be by sleeping on the floor as refugees often do, or skipping a meal to understand just a little of the hunger that many children face every day.

Matthew 25 is a truly immersive experience that transforms how we see the world.

Why support the vulnerable?

Matthew 25:35-40 calls us to respond to the needs of the most vulnerable in our world: the hungry, thirsty, stranger, poor, sick and oppressed.

At World Vision, we believe that together, we are called to help vulnerable children living in the world’s most dangerous places: those forced to flee their homes due to conflict, political instability, famine and disaster. Refugees and displaced people live in some of the hardest circumstances, but together, we can support them to survive; recover; thrive and rejoice.
