Fighting erupted in South Sudan at the end of 2013, between forces loyal to President Salva Kirr, who belongs to the Dinka ethnic group and former Deputy President Riek Machar who belongs to the Lou Nuer. So far the conflict has led to 1.5 million people fleeing their homes, of which 386,000 have left the country for neighbouring nations.

A call to pray urgently for Syria peace talks - Resources for Syria Sunday 17th November

International leaders are urging that a peace conference on Syria, dubbed Geneva II, should take place in late November, although at the time of writing a date has not yet been agreed. In response, Tearfund is calling churches to unite on Syria Sunday, 17 November, to pray for the peace process in Syria.
Please join us in praying that the Geneva II peace conference will take place without delay or hindrance, that all parties to the conflict will be present, and that the talks will be representative of the peaceful majority of Syrians, including women’s groups and refugees.

Download and share the resources for Sunday intercessions next week.

  • Syria – 7 Day Prayer Guide: Please use this guide to help you pray for Syria. You may like to focus on a different issue each day or to use these topics in a prayer group setting.
  • Syria Sunday – Church Prayer Guide: Time is running out for the men, women and children affected by the conflict. Winter is coming, and the cold weather will hit refugees hard. A peaceful solution to the crisis in Syria needs to be found – now.

The Choice - 2013 Autumn Church Resources

Sina lives in Tonle Batie village, Cambodia. Her smile cannot hide the poverty surrounding her. Her family doesn’t have enough food. Sina is painfully thin and her home is ramshackle. Nevertheless, Sina clings to the hope that the future can be better.
Her village church has a plan. It wants to give people the chance to learn new skills such as agriculture and business management with which they can earn more income.
It would be each family’s choice, of course. Some might say ‘no’, and the church would need to be prepared for that. But some would say ‘yes’, and that would make it a joyful day.

All over the world, churches can help their communities to find pathways out of poverty – if there’s enough long-term backing. Tearfund desperately wants to provide this backing – and that’s where this Autumn resource comes in…

*Use the film to tell Sina’s story.
*Hold a collection. Every cent raised will help us give people like Sina the chance to change their lives.
*Pray for Sina and the new church project in Tonle Batie.

Your prayers and giving will give Sina and many others like her the chance to build a better life for their families.
