Tearfund is a Christian charity which partners with churches in more than 50 of the world’s poorest countries in an endeavour to lift many millions out of extreme poverty, to be a voice for the voiceless through advocacy and to empower and equip communities.
St Mark's contributes to Tearfund’s ‘Under-reported Disasters Fund’. Tearfund then equips and resources many to respond with provisions and care and to work with organisations on the frontline in those areas facing disasters, be they war or the result of extreme weather conditions. Countless numbers turn to the church when their world has been turned upside down. It's good when they find a refuge, food and support which acts as a bridge to families to less troubled times when lives can be rebuilt.
The St Mark’s mission partner champion for Tearfund is Adrian Hawthorn, who can be contacted via the church office.
St Mark's also supports Tearfund through the Toilet Twinning Programme.
