A Tearfund initiative

Together, tackling injustice

'The Spirit of the Lord is upon me, because he hath anointed me to preach the gospel to the poor; he hath sent me to heal the brokenhearted, to preach deliverance to the captives, and recovering of sight to the blind, to set at liberty them that are bruised.' (Luke 4:18 King James Version)

The Well is a powerful initiative working in partnership with Black Christians and Black Majority Churches to help tackle extreme poverty and injustice.

Together, as we take action, and through prayer, the word, gatherings, events and community, we believe that we can make a difference in the world today; that we can be the change. We are hugely proud of The Well and are excited to see what the future holds.

Poverty is not part of God’s plan but you, beloved friend, are. We believe that God’s plan is God’s mission: to redeem the whole of creation, broken by sin and evil, into the new creation, populated by the redeemed from every culture, through the cross and resurrection of Christ.
