Christmas Appeal

A gift for your neighbour this Christmas...

An easy way for your church to support Tearfund’s Christmas Appeal and make a difference for people living in poverty.

How often would you like to donate?

Our global neighbours are facing the threat of climate catastrophe. Floods, storms and droughts are on the rise. Homes are being destroyed, crops wrecked, and lives ruined.

Your church’s gift to families around the world this Christmas could be the ability to be safe and ready when disaster strikes.

Our free resources – including a short film and creative prayer ideas – will make it easy for your church to put their faith into action and respond.

Strength in the face of disaster

Your church’s support will be life-saving for people like Juliet.

A proud mother of two, and carer for her sick husband, Juliet is known as a pillar of her community. But it’s a community in peril.

Juliet lives in Bangladesh – one of the most densely populated and disaster-prone countries in the world. Low-lying and in the path of monsoons and cyclones, flooding is common. And it’s become more common. And more severe.

‘Disaster is always with us,’ Juliet says. ‘We are living with it and trying to manage our livelihoods. Disaster is making us financially poor. We are falling behind. With all our might, we cannot move forward.’

Our local church partner is working to equip Juliet’s community with the tools and techniques they need to adapt. These include more resilient housing, early warning systems, and training in disaster preparation skills like emergency first aid – providing the ability to be ready and safe when disaster strikes.

Poverty isn’t God’s plan. You are. Your church’s gift will make life-saving work like this possible all around the world. Please download our Christmas Appeal resources today to use in your Christmas services. It will make a huge difference to people like Juliet.

In Northern Ireland only, until 31 December, thanks to the generosity of SPAR, EUROSPAR, ViVO and ViVOXTRA, your church’s gift will be doubled up to a total of £200,000!
