"Tearfund’s call is to follow Jesus where the need is greatest. We do whatever it takes to end poverty and rebuild poor communities. We work through local churches, because they're Jesus’ body on earth, ready to care for the whole person - and the whole community - inside and out." Find out more about the work of Tearfund Scotland on their website, Facebook page and Twitter page. Our church supports Tearfund's Toilet Twinning Project. Look out for certificates in our twinned toilets and spot which countries we are twinned with! These toilets were twinned with support from pupils at Lenzie Academy, Lenzie Moss and Millersneuk S.U. groups. Our Tearfund representative at Lenzie Union is Janet Dickson.
