From the Anglican Communion Environment Network Carbon Fast for Lent

To all Church Choirs: Help End Hunger by holding a “Spring into Song” concert. 

A Cross Canada Canadian Foograins Project called Spring Into Song” is being offered to local church choirs and musicians, who would like to support the many people on our planet who regularly experience hunger.
Your church choir and musicians can be involved by holding a Spring Into Song sing along concert on or near the 2016 Earth Day weekend (April 22-24). Utilizing the power of social media, your event will be recognized as an important piece of a nationwide offering.
The music requires minimal rehearsal commitments but offers maximum satisfaction for singers and musicians.
Everything needed for your parish to organize and present a Spring Into Song concert is provided in a complimentary Production Kit and Guide from Canadian Foodgrains Bank and Musiklus. There is no cost. It includes copyright-cleared music for singers and musicians, rehearsal recordings, publicity materials, detailed task descriptions, and more.
Register online at You can also get more information or register by sending an email to [email protected] or by phoning 1-800-665- 0377 (local 204-944-1993).
Spring Into Song is supported by the Government of Canada. Canadian Foodgrains Bank is a partnership of 15 Canadian church denominations and church-based agencies (called members) working together to end global hunger.

What is a carbon fast for Lent? For Anglicans  and many others, Lent is the time when we remember the 40 days that Jesus spent in the wilderness, facing challenge and temptation. It is a time when we reflect on Gods purpose for our life. This year we challenge you to take a carbon fast  to reduce the actions which damage Gods Creation.
Find more details of each days action, as well as a daily scripture and prayer here or on www.facebook/GreenAnglicans
The one pager of 40 actions can be found at this link
or on the Diocese of NS & PEI webpage
