Tearfund and the Cambridge Centre for Christianity Worldwide (CCCW) researched the way that local churches respond to people’s needs in fragile states affected by long-running conflict. Fieldwork was undertaken in South Sudan, Syria and Lebanon. The research was designed to find out the churches’ own perspectives and encourage church representatives to tell their stories, giving Tearfund an opportunity to listen.
