Mission outreach

Tearfund

As a united benefice we support Tearfund through a connected Church scheme in Kenya

International development charity, Tearfund, is driven by the belief that the local church is a powerful force for transformation in communities living in poverty in the developing world. Inspired by the example and teaching of Jesus, they recognise that people’s material and spiritual needs are closely connected and seek to meet those needs by working through our local church partners.

Working in Africa, Asia and South America – and also across Eastern Europe and the UK they are focussing on some of the biggest ch allenges facing the world today. Find out more about what they do and where….
