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 The World Development Movement raising over 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 menu bar to your right  to find resources and ideas to bring the programme to life in your Church.
