Volunteers are – and always have been – at the heart of everything we do at Christian Aid. By putting your faith into action, you will be helping inspire your community to give, act and pray for real change.

- Nick Georgiadis, Director of Fundraising and Supporter Engagement.

What can I do?

As a volunteer Speaker you will spread the word about Christian Aid’s work in your local churches and community. You’ll be helping to grow a movement of people passionate about ending poverty and tackling climate injustice.

You’ll be resources to actively seek opportunities to speak in your area, encouraging others to give, act and pray towards our work. You’ll meet likeminded others and use your faith to make a difference.

About our speakers

Being a volunteer Speaker is a rewarding opportunity to grow your church/community network and talk to others about the work of Christian Aid. You get regular support and training, information and resources, as well as out-of-pocket expenses.

“If you’re thinking about becoming a speaker, I would really encourage you to do it. It's a great opportunity to really immerse yourself in these stories behind Christian Aids campaigns. You really get to know the people and are able to speak passionately about challenges they face and their hopes for a better future.” – David Blackmore, Volunteer

It helps to have experience speaking in different contexts, but the main thing you need is the ability to bring stories to life in a simple and engaging way.

“You don't have to be a great orator at all, just to speak from your heart.” – Sue Claydon, Volunteering

Christian Aid Speaker preaching in a local Church.

Speak out for those who cannot speak, for the rights of all the destitute. Speak out, judge righteously, defend the rights of the poor and needy.

- Proverbs 31:8-9.

You will be able to use your faith to talk to some of the biggest issues in the world now, encouraging others to take action.

Or you might be speaking as a thank you to a church or community group that has raised funds. Whatever the opportunity, know that you will be joining with us to bring an end to poverty.

‘It's great to visit new churches and meet new people. For me, it's all about responding to Jesus's command to love God and love our neighbours as ourselves.’ – David Blackmore, volunteer
