If your answer is 'yes' then Tearfund's Connected Church is for you.

How does it work?

Connecting your Church, youth group or home group to Tearfund is simple and you choose the level of engagement that that will work for your faith community. The main emphasis is learning together, praying together and acting together. You lead the way to activate your faith community, we resource you and provide inspiration and support. They take what they have learnt and put their faith in action fundraising and advocating for justice together.

Whether your church or group is big or small, young or mature we have resources and opportunities that will get them started on a journey. Discipleship is about putting our faith in action and when a community of people come together around a cause it is inspiring to see what they can achieve. Let us help your church or group find their cause and empower you to lead the way as you Learn, Pray and Act together for justice.
