During this intimate and engaging time, you will discover how their futures were shaped by the actions of another and learn how you can be that someone who can transform someone else’s life. This inspiring event will tug on your heartstrings as you are drawn into these fascinating, life-giving stories. 

You won’t want to miss it. 

  • You’ll meet Joyce and Danny who were both sponsored children in the Philippines.

In support of Child Sponsorship 

My Life Was Changed will be held in support of Tearfund’s child sponsorship work, which aims to see children set free from poverty in Jesus’s name. Sponsoring a child is a powerful and effective way to help change the life of a child living in poverty. Empowered by the local church, sponsorship can open up a future a child can usually only dream about. Sponsorship provides a place where children receive spiritual encouragement and teaching, nutritional support, medical assistance, and emotional and social nurturing. As the church pours into children, their dreams and aspirations come to life and the chains of poverty begin to break. With good health, education, confidence, and faith in Christ, sponsored children are armed to create a better future for themselves. 
Tearfund is committed to providing a safe environment for all who attend our events. We comply fully with all health measures put in place in response to the pandemic. Events on a Friday or Saturday night will be ticketed to allow for this.
