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 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, partner countries resources, videos, Intern news, worship and much more.
These now available to download as a pdfs on the Partner Countries page. Read about Fulmala, Brighton, Lidia and Amal to see how the money you raise is used. These stories make excellent articles for church magazines.
