Faiths Act Congregations
We believe faith communities can unite to do something to eradicate deaths from malaria – a preventable disease. Here is a guide on how to help by organising Faith Act Congregations events. Together, we can save lives and show the world how faith can be a force 4 good.
What are Faiths Act Congregations?
Faiths Act Congregations events are larger events where the support of a whole or multiple congregations are mobilised towards the Faiths Act campaign. They are great ways to build support from your own faith community and bring congregations of different faiths together – to unite against death from malaria.
Here’s how it works:
- Download our 'Useful resources' below to get your congregation started.
- Get creative and mobilise your congregation for a Faiths Act event, like a Tea or Ribbons. event – the possibilities are endless, so get creative!
- Send us your photos and stories.
Ideas for organising a Faiths Act Congregations event
- Why not cook up a storm with a fundraising bake sale at your place of worship?
- Donate money collected at a regular service to our Faiths Act work on malaria prevention in Sierra Leone.
- Bring a malaria theme to an existing event your congregation has planned.
- Ask your religious leader to give a sermon on multi-faith action against malaria.
- Invite another congregation to join in and show the world that faith can be a force 4 good and that we can achieve more together than apart.
- Get your local media interested or use social media to tell people what you are doing and that faith is a force 4 good.
If you’re a faith leader
Faith leaders have a particularly important role to play in their communities, especially on global issues like malaria, whether they’re in the UK or Uganda. They are figures of legitimacy and trust, and are present in the most remote areas where government networks may not be able to reach. So if you’re a faith leader, check out the sermon guides, faith reflections and other resources you can use below to educate your community.
