Tearfund Sunday

Devote one Sunday to seeing people freed from poverty, living transformed lives, and reaching their God-given potential.

Your church can help families out of poverty and bring lasting hope.

Tearfund Sunday is an invitation for your church family to deepen their understanding of God’s heart for the poor and walk alongside the global church to help end it. We believe that the church is God’s primary way of bringing transformation and life to a hurting world. In fact, we believe it is the only entity that can address poverty in its whole, both spiritually and physically. 

Join with Churches across Canada who have boldly stood up to release families out of poverty and declare that Christ has come to bring life to the full. Register today and you’ll receive sermon tools and variety of free resources to host a Sunday morning full of impact and inspiration.  

Your church is part of God's plan to end poverty.

Your church will hear true stories on how God is transforming the lives in miraculous ways using their prayers and donations.

Global Mission

Tearfund Sunday is an invitation to participate God’s global restoration mission. Your congregation can put faith into action in both word and deed.


Tearfund Sunday connects you with God’s family around the world and offers an opportunity to partner with His Church to break the bonds of physical and spiritual poverty.

Everything You Need for A Sunday Morning

As part of Tearfund Sunday you will receive everything you need to run an inspiring Sunday service including sermon notes, an inspirational video of a real story, congregation handouts, a PowerPoint, social media posts, and more. 

This year we have Two NEW packages to choose from:

We believe the church is a catalyst for change and the best way to help families out of physical and spiritual poverty! Based on the story of the woman at the well, Alive digs into what it means for us to go beyond our walls and love those who live on the margins.

Your congregation will be transported to Ethiopia and be inspired as they hear the story of how one church radically transformed its community by reaching beyond its walls. Alive truly is an encouraging Sunday morning for anyone who wants to see the Kingdom of God grow!

What does poverty have to do with caring for creation? In the face of water shortages, soil infertility, and food shortages, Streams of Living Water unpacks how the poor have been hardest hit by a changing climate. In this unique kit, your congregation will learn what the Bible has to say about caring for creation and the role that Christians can play. 

They will travel to Kenya to hear the story of Catharine and how, with the help of the local church, she was able to adapt and thrive through the implementation of sustainable farming methods. Streams of Living Water is the perfect Sunday for anyone who is trying to connect modern problems with Biblical truth.
