Serving Persecuted Christians Worldwide - Events Volunteer - Open Doors UK & Ireland

Events Volunteer

Are you known for your friendliness and your ability to strike up conversation? Are you the first to make people welcome and the last person to leave when there's tidying up to be done? Can you give a weekend or a week to serve with Open Doors in practical ways?

You can make a difference...

We rely on teams of volunteers at events like Big Church Day Out and New Wine to promote the ministry of Open Doors and inspire the prayer support of tomorrow.

If you are...

  • Always ready to serve and willing to muck in and get the job done
  • Full of energy and enthusiasm and enjoy working as part of a team
  • Friendly, approachable and have the confidence to introduce Open Doors to a prospective supporter
  • Happy to follow instructions and work towards a common goal
  • Inspired by the testimonies of persecuted Christians and keen to share their stories on their behalf
  • You may even have some experience in hospitality, catering, exhibitions or public speaking

Maybe you would like to...

  • Encourage new people to pray for persecuted Christians
  • Set up event equipment
  • Engage potential and existing supporters in conversation, encouraging them to take action
  • Make a big difference to the ministry in a short space of time

We have lots of ways to support you and encourage you on this journey:

  • Feedback and debrief at the end of an event

"Our fantastic volunteers allow us to be present at festivals and events across the country and throughout the year, speaking out for our persecuted brothers and sisters. Volunteering at events with us is a great way to get out there and share stories that otherwise might not be heard, and to challenge the church in the UK and Ireland to rise up and stand shoulder to shoulder with our wider family” Debs, Events Officer
