Why volunteer with REinspired?
Why be a volunteer?
What our volunteers say…
- It’s a joy & a privilege to share stories about Jesus, to those who haven’t heard them before.
- Sessions also encourage children from Christian families.
- It’s fun and interesting. I learn a lot too!
- Love it when the children ask questions and when we see the ‘penny drop’.
- I love the way we use ‘I wonder’ questions. Seeing how the children respond and trust us when offering their ideas and thoughts.
- I have enjoyed meeting and working with Christians from other churches. Respecting difference and celebrating what unites us is good modelling, I think.
- Brilliant opportunity to support our churches’ mission and outreach.
- Easy to do, well thought out and resourced. Good training too.
- Volunteer training mornings leave me feeling encouraged and equipped.
“I think I have been to every one of these since I joined (11) and there has not been a dud one yet! Each one is so relevant to what we are about to do in school … I have been a teacher all my life and these are better than any of the inset training sessions we ever did.”
