Faith Engagement

Building the Kingdom

The powerful, prayerful support of our many church partners has been central to our work since it began. Habitat is about more than building houses. It is about demonstrating the love of God through practical action. It is our Christian faith that motivates our mission. We are witness to the power and love of Jesus each time we build a house, strengthen a community and make people aware of families in need.

Habitat offers many opportunities to build the Kingdom and express God’s love by putting faith in action and helping those in need. See how you can get involved below.




The powerful prayers of many faithful supporters underpin Habitat’s work every day at home and around the world. Prayer keeps faith at the centre of a call to service and justice. Become a Habitat prayer partner and sign up for our regular prayer points by emailing us: Download our latest prayer points here.


Become a HOPEBuilder Church

Being a HOPEbuilder is about doing something in our community which will have a life-changing impact somewhere else in the world. By becoming a HOPEbuilder Church and raising funds or giving a gift in support of Habitat’s work, your church will help to provide vulnerable families with the foundation they need to escape the cycle of poverty and build a better future.

Volunteers play an important role in our vision of a world where everyone has a decent place to live. Our local community building projects and international volunteer programme offers the unique opportunity to work beside families, groups and communities at home and around the world and witness firsthand the transformational work Habitat does every day.

These opportunities can be arranged for your church or in partnership with other congregations.

Pray for Ukraine

Join us as we cover Habitat’s response to the unfolding crisis in Ukraine in prayer.

It seems like the whole world held its breath as the tragic situation in Ukraine unfolded. I know there have been many calls for support so I wanted to share Habitat’s response to the biggest humanitarian crisis in Europe in our lifetime. Your prayers will be much appreciated, and your support, if you haven’t already committed. Learn more here.
