Wednesday 1st March to Sunday 9th April 2017! 

This is an amazing opportunity to be a part of a global prayer to end abortion which sees incredible results! 
Simultaneous vigils will happen throughout the world!  Get involved and you can help save lives!

40 Days for Life runs in 40 countries across more than 600 cities and is known to have saved 12,668 lives and resulted in 83 abortion centre closures worldwide. It s internationally co-ordinated and locally run so that through prayer and fasting, community outreach and peaceful vigil, we might help to bring about an end to the tragedy of abortion and offer hope to abortion vulnerable.

This Lent, for the first time, 40 Days for Life vigils in Auckland, Wellington and Christchurch will run 12 hours a day, every day for 40 consecutive days - so this will be the largest 40 Days for Life mobilisation ever seen in New Zealand. This means we need volunteers more than ever, to take shifts in small groups to keep peaceful and prayerful vigil outside your local abortion centre.

Your presence saves lives!

40 Days for Life Board Chair, Matt Britton will visit New Zealand from the United States from 28th February to 5th March. He will be speaking in Auckland, Wellington and Christchurch at special events and will also be present at the vigils to pray with us.

"God has given us reason to have tremendous hope.  Now its time for us to trust him.  
It's time for us to put our faith into action and it's time for us to take this moment in history 
and make it the beginning of the end of abortion."
