Volunteer Request from Soul Survivor

Soul Survivor is an organisation that runs events to help people deepen their relationship with Jesus and grow in the ministry and power of the Holy Spirit.

Last year we launched our first family conference ‘Naturally Supernatural’ and to our delight, we welcomed over 600 children to the event! Due to the high number of children, we also encountered difficulties in recruiting enough team members to facilitate so many. NSN runs from Saturday 28th July and Thursday 2nd August at Stafford Showground.

This year, we want to ensure that we have enough team to be certain that every single child can engage well, be safely cared for and grow in their spiritual life. For more information…

Volunteers receive training and support in Chaplaincy skills, connecting Chaplaincy to local churches and making sense of workplaces. Volunteer Chaplains are often established Christians who are excited at the prospect of working with God outside of the ‘usual walls’ of the Church, and alongside people of no faith and other faiths. Chaplaincy is about personal support and listening, organisational presence, and awakening people to the bigger questions of life.

CIGB is a growing, diverse, ecumenical charity, with over 50 volunteer chaplains, sponsored by Birmingham Church Leaders.
