The Evangelical Alliance was founded in 1846 and is the oldest alliance of evangelical Christians in the world.
The Alliance is the largest body serving evangelical Christians in the UK, and has a membership including denominations, churches, organisations and individuals. In its formative years the Alliance particularly stood for the victims of religious persecution and enabled evangelicals from different denominations to work together.
As part of a movement 'uniting to change society' the Alliance promotes unity and truth, acts as an evangelical voice to the state, society and the wider church, and works collaboratively with Alliance members and other evangelicals, to present Christ credibly as good news for spiritual and social transformation.
The Alliance speaks on behalf of its members and represents evangelical concerns to Government, the National Assemblies, the media and key decision-makers. In resourcing its members and encouraging Christians to fully engage in their communities as responsible citizens, the Alliance strives to make evangelical truths publicly accessible.
Tearfund is a Christian international aid and development agency working globally to end poverty and injustice, and to restore dignity and hope in some of the worldâ€™s poorest communities.
We operate in more than fifty countries around the world. As well as being present in disaster situations and recovery through our response teams, we speak out on behalf of poor people on the national and international stage by petitioning governments, campaigning for justice and raising the profile of key poverty issues wherever we can.
The mission of the Barnabas Fund is to support Christians where they are in a minority and suffer discrimination, oppression and persecution as a consequence of their faith. Our goal is to strengthen Christian individuals, churches and their communities by providing material and spiritual support in response to needs identified by local Christian leaders.
We do this by making their needs known to Christians around the world, by encouraging prayer and financial giving in support of these brothers and sisters in Christ, working with existing local Christian organisations, and by speaking on their behalf. The Fund channels this aid from donors to the needy recipients with minimum overheads. All gifts are monitored to ensure they are used in line with the stated need.
In accordance with Biblical teaching, we believe that Christians should treat all people of all faiths with love and compassion, even those who persecute them.
Christian Friends of Israel
We are a ministry with a twin focus.
We seek to:
1. Bless Israel by means of practical and moral support.
2. Serve the Church with teaching and resources about God's love and purposes for Israel and the Hebraic roots of our faith.
Lewes District Churches Homelink
Churches Together in Lewes, Newhaven and Seaford started a scheme in 1999, in partnership with Lewes District Council, to assistÂ homeless people to obtain private rented accommodation.
The HOMELINK scheme usually benefits local applicants for whom the District Council has no statutory responsibility and who are eligibleÂ for Housing Benefit.
Most applicants will be referred by Lewes District Council. After two interviews, HOMELINK may provideÂ part or all of the finance needed to access accommodation.
About 30 local churches nominate a representative to HOMELINK which is a Registered Charitable Trust.
