We'll be exploring themes of justice and poverty, with inspiration from ancient and everyday saints from across Scotland and around the world.

Talking about the project, the Moderator of the General Assembly of the Church of Scotland, Right Rev Angus Morrison said: 'We walk with Christian Aid as our companions as we seek a true fast this Lent: to loose the chains of injustice and to let the oppressed go free.'

Kathy Galloway, Head of Christian Aid Scotland, added: 'It is the calling of Christian Aid to accompany the wilderness journey of Lent; to hold out the possibility of another way, the way of justice, the way of faith, hope and love.'
