Mission of the month
As a church we support a number of Christian mission organisations that do
important work in serving God locally, nationally and internationally.
We support them all by praying for one each month during our church services.
During the month of November we are focusing on Tearfund.
As a Christian charity, Tearfund believes that everyone has an amazing God-given potential to create change. They show people around the world how to unlock these gifts and put them to use escaping poverty. Many of their partners in this work are local churches, who discover how to offer their communities material and spiritual hope. When disaster strikes, Tearfund is ready to respond. And they encourage men and women like us to speak out about issues that affect those affected by poverty.
Tearfund is committed to following Jesus wherever the need is greatest. They are present in over 50 countries – working in close partnership with local churches and other Christian organisations.
Tearfund give 4 reasons why we should trust them. They say:
In our disaster response, we adhere to the highest international standards, and the quality and integrity of our work are reflected in the accreditations and endorsements we receive.
In our work through churches and partners rooted in local communities, we’re committed to transparency and accountability that gives donors certainty their money gets right to where it is needed most.
We want to be good stewards of the money entrusted to us so 77 pence (2019/20) in every pound is spent on life-changing work that impacts the poorest people.
We’re motivated and inspired by our faith to follow Jesus where the need is greatest.
