Commitment for Life is the world development programme of the United Reformed Church. We celebrated 20 years of faith in action in 2012. We encourage participating churches to take action, pray and give for people across the world but especially in our four partner countries of Bangladesh, Jamaica, Israel and the occupied Palestinian territory and Zimbabwe. We work in partnership with Christian Aid and The World Development Movement raising over half a million pounds a year from contributing churches.
To find out more about the programme, visit the resouces page and look at the Intro leaflet or pack or watch this video on Youtube. Use the menu bar opposite to find the resources and ideas you need to bring the programme to life in your Church.
How much do you want to end hunger? Worldwide, 1 in 8 people can't get enough food. Ever wondered what that feels like? As part of our action around the G8, we’re going to make hunger personal, just for one day, by choosing to go without food so the leaders of the world see how hungry we are for change! Read more and register your participation.
Confirmed: Archbishop Vincent Nichols will be speaking
There is enough food for everyone, but 1 in 8 people do not have enough food. IF you act now, you can help begin to end this silent scandal.
In June, the world‟s most powerful leaders come together to decide the fate of millions at the G8 Summit. The decisions they make could change the future for millions of hard-working people from the world‟s poorest countries who face a daily struggle to put food on the table. We need to make a big enough noise to get them to fix the broken food system.
Join the IF campaign at enoughfoodif.org & make your voice heard. Join thousands of others at our Big IF rallys to begin to end the silent scandal of hunger.
Commitment for Life and The United Reformed Church are part of the IF coalition. read more on our CAMPAIGNS page.
