When so many people need so much help, giving can sometimes feel hit and miss, and choosing between charities can be hard. Acts 435 puts people who can give in touch with people who are in need with the Church as the physical, face-to-face forum to enable virtual, online giving.
Many churches run their own charity or together with other churches have set up a charity helping people in need. Acts 435 does work through Christian charities as well as churches of all denominations and independent churches.
When someone needs to request financial help, they meet the advocate for their local church taking part in Acts 435. The advocates are the crucial link between people who need financial help, and people who want to help. They serve as an advocate (spokesperson) for those in need in their community, and put their requests on the Acts 435 website.
