Tearfund Northern Ireland

At Tearfund, we believe the local church is central to overcoming poverty and transforming lives. We’re part of it, along with others around the world and with each and every one of our amazing supporters. Together, we make up the global church. Tearfund has operated in Northern Ireland for more than 40 years and continues with a strong network of supporters and churches.

We have a vision to see 50 million people released from material and spiritual poverty through a worldwide network of 100,000 local churches.

We are delighted to invite you to join renowned author, church leader and Tearfund Board member Andy Hickford at two upcoming events as he highlights inspiring stories of Christians who are bringing good news to their local communities.

You’ll then have the opportunity to take part in one of four interactive workshops, run jointly with
Care for the Family, to enable you and your church to reach out locally: 

Just People - Tearfund’s 6 week course which is designed to enable church members think through jesus’ call to bring good news to the poor. You can read how Ivan Patterson used the Just People course in his church in Newcastle here.

Discovery - a programme to assist your churches to assess the needs of your local community and to develop a mission plan. You can read how Steve Stockman plans to use our Discovery programme with his church in South Belfast here.

21st Century parent - a Care for the Family course to help your church reach out to local parents

How to drug proof your kids - equipping your church to address drug’s issues 

The workshops, which are particularly designed for those who are interested in helping their church reach out, will take place on :

Monday 20th September at 7.30 pm in Hill Street Presbyterian Lurgan  

Tuesday 21st September at 7.30pm in Fisherwick Presbyterian Church

There will also be an additional workshop for youth leaders at the Belfast event to introduce our Youth Just People course.
