    – Matthew Wiley

    Lead Pastor, Rice Road Community Church

    Tearfund Sunday is an opportunity for us to pool our resources together and to make a difference in the lives of others. The experience was uplifting and uniting. It brought the congregation together and it has prepared us for the conversation we are having now in regards to sending people on short term missions trips.

Your Questions, Answered



We decide which countries to work in using internationally recognised indicators of poverty to inform our choices. To find out more about the countries where our partners are meeting material and spiritual needs, visit our About page.

We understand that there are many needs across the world and many places where people are still living in poverty. Tearfund has to make some very hard decisions about how to use the limited financial resources that are entrusted to us and it is not possible for us to support every country.
