Tearfund Ireland is compelled by the belief as a Christian organisation and a part of the Christian Church in Ireland that the church has a significant and essential role to play in ending poverty and injustice.
We believe that as the church and Christians we are called to active involvement in ending poverty and seeking justice for people who are marginalised and vulnerable. Tearfund Ireland believes that God calls us to ‘whole-of-life’ Christianity and, as His church, to live out our faith as ‘salt and light’ in the world we live in.
The local church is at the heart of what we do and we partner with churches and faith based organisations all around the world. We invite you and your church to be part of this journey.
And what does the Lord require of you? To act justly and to love mercy, to walk humbly with your God.

Tearfund Ireland want to equip church leaders to bring Biblical principles of global justice into their ministries. We offer a wide range of services open to anyone in church leadership, youth ministry, children’s ministry and beyond! If you care about issues of global justice and you want to see that outworked in your church or ministry then we would love to support and equip you to do that.
We offer workshops and seminars on specific global justice issues such as human trafficking and modern day slavery, caring for creation, making the links between local and global mission, the refugee crisis and conflict, as well as many other pertinent global issues.
We speak at conferences and have partnered with New Wine Ireland, AGI, Plumbline, CCI, EAI etc.
