The Sunday Cash Collection on Sunday in St Marys’ on Sunday 12th March is in aid of Tearfund
Tearfund is an international Christian relief and development agency based in Teddington, UK. It currently works in around 50 countries, with a primary focus on supporting those in poverty and providing disaster relief for disadvantaged communities.
Tearfund is a Christian charity with over 50 years of experience in international development. We believe that poverty is not God’s plan, and an end to extreme poverty is possible.
Tearfund work directly, and/or alongside local partners and churches, in underserved communities in more than 50 countries to tackle complex poverty in three main ways:
They respond quickly to disasters and conflicts, supporting those in greatest need throughout the recovery process.
They partner with local churches and organisations, mobilising resources and empowering communities to lift themselves out of poverty.
Advocacy and influencing
They help individuals and churches speak out on issues of poverty and injustice, and we challenge unjust policies and practices at a local, national and global level.
Please note that only cash in the collection plate can go to the charity, yellow & blue envelopes do not.
