Thank you for supporting local communities through Church Urban Fund

Church giving masthead

Church Urban Fund was one of the first organisations to support local, faith-based responses to urban poverty – and we have been equipping churches and transforming communities ever since. We support local leaders who are passionate about helping their neighbours, trying to create a brighter future for everyone. We recognise the vital role churches play in fostering a strong and compassionate community. Together, we can amplify the positive impact we have on the lives of those in need.

But we can't achieve this alone. Your church’s support is vital in ensuring we can continue this support.

Every act of compassion, no matter how small, reflects our humanity and embodies love and care for our community. In a world facing challenges such as homelessness and poverty, the importance of following Jesus' example of compassion and action has never been more critical.

We believe that faith-based communities play a crucial role in fostering compassion and inspiring positive change.

“For I was hungry and you gave me something to eat, I was thirsty and you gave me something to drink, I was a stranger and you invited me in, I needed clothes and you clothed me, I was sick and you looked after me, I was in prison and you came to visit me.”
