Volunteering with your church

While your prayers and financial donations are vital to our work, another invaluable way you can support our work is by giving your time.

There are plenty of ways you can volunteer for us, including some roles that are distinctly tied to churches. 

In your church

In your church you could help organise a special seasonal service, such as Christingle or Mothering Sunday.

Do you thrive on public speaking? We need volunteers who can inspire congregations through speaking and preaching, informing and educating congregations about the issues we work on. We will provide you with resources and training to help you resource and inspire others. 

In the Church of England, you could become involved at a diocesan level, representing us to senior church figures and clergy in your diocese. You’ll be an advocate for our organisation, working closely with fundraising committees in your area, and arranging meetings to encourage local supporters to get together. Please contact our Supporter Care team, 0300 303 7000, for more information.

At our events

Do you enjoy festivals like Greenbelt and New Wine? 

Join our team of volunteers at New Wine and help us inspire conference goers to give valuable funds to help disadvantaged children. We’ll give you a free ticket and cover your travel and food costs whilst volunteering.

Or volunteer for three months this summer to help us organise our presence at church events. By ensuring smooth administration of our events you’ll help us fundraise and campaign in fun and creative ways, develop your skills and experience and make a real difference to the lives of vulnerable children. Apply by 6 May.
