Why we exist…..

When a community lifts itself out of poverty, everything changes. Poverty does more than exhaust, starve, trap and kill people. It destroys their sense of worth, limits their horizons, robs people of the chance to reach their full potential. Tearfund’s call is to follow Jesus where the need is greatest. We long for new life and a new sense of worth for people. We do whatever it takes to end poverty and rebuild poor communities. We work through local churches, because they’re Jesus’ body on earth, ready to care for the whole person – and the whole community – inside and out.tearfund-slider

Before, you knew us for our droughts, our poverty. But now the poor are transforming this country, and poverty shall no longer be our name.

Connected Church is a simple, effective way for our church to link up with churches working to bring transformation to their local communities around the world.
It’s a great way to connect with poverty, to see lives transformed – and a chance to really change our own community.

Since 2009 tearfund have been linking churches and Christian groups in the UK and beyond with their amazing partners who are working to fight poverty, disease and disasters; following Jesus where the need is greatest.

More than 200 churches have chosen a partner to connect with, pray for, give to and visit and many enriching relationships have begun.  Join us as we journey together.

Prayer is the lifeblood of everything we do. We depend on it. We can’t hope to bring healing to a suffering world without God’s help. Please join us, and thousands of churches across the world, in prayer today.
