Churches

Church main image


The Church is at the heart of all that Viva does.

Everything we do comes from our faith in and response to Jesus Christ, who calls us to show unconditional love to all children (Mark 10:13-16), to prayerfully work together in unity (John 17:20-26) and to be life-giving in all we do (John 15:12-13).

Our overseas partner networks bring together Christians in a city to reach out to vulnerable children. This frontline activity is crucially supported by churches across the world which faithfully give to and pray for this work.

Whether you lead a church, mission group or children’s ministry, we can help you be part of this exciting work. Here’s how your church can partner with us:
