Our work with churches

Working alongside national churches and individual congregations.

Christian Aid is the official relief, development and advocacy agency of 41 sponsoring churches in Britain and Ireland, and part of the church community worldwide.
The British and Irish churches set up Christian Aid so that they, and others, could help refugees in the aftermath of the Second World War and ‘respond to Christ’s command to care for all in need’.
Our sponsoring churches in Scotland are:
We are accountable and answerable to these churches for all we do. Through regular meetings and ongoing relationships, we work with and through them – locally, regionally and nationally.
Our Advisory Committee, which includes representatives from sponsoring churches, guides the vision, values and purpose of Christian Aid – to end poverty and ‘relieve or combat malnutrition, hunger, disease, sickness or distress throughout the world’.
