Who we are
Commitment for Life is the world development programme of the United Reformed Church. We encourage participating churches to take action, pray and give for people across the world but especially in our four partner countries/region of Bangladesh, Central America (Honduras, Guatemala. Nicaragua and El Salvador), Israel and the occupied Palestinian territory and Zimbabwe. We work in partnership with Christian Aid and Global Justice Now (formerly The World Development Movement) raising around half a million pounds a year from contributing churches. To find out more about the programme, visit the resources page and look at the Intro Leaflet. Use the Mission/Commitment for Life/drop menu bar to find Stories from Partner countries, videos, Intern news, worship and much more.
This year's service outline 'Committed to God's Earth' can be found here.
It contains sermon notes by Rev Alex Mabbs, family time activities, service outline and much more.
