Stories from our volunteers

Lisa Adams, a mum and neonatal nurse from Bradford, volunteers at our Sorted Project which reaches out to young people in some of the city’s most deprived areas.

"Sorted works on some really tough housing estates where there is little for young people to do. I join other members of the team each week to make contact with those who hang around the streets. We try to spend time chatting with them and, when appropriate, share about our faith. A lot of the young people we meet are really messed up and angry, and having had a difficult childhood myself, it is a joy to let God use my bad experiences to help me relate to others. Each time we go out on the streets it is a challenge, but God always amazes and helps us grow and trust in Him."

Emily Ferry lives in Newmills, Northern Ireland, where she volunteers with our Zacchaeus Outreach Project, which works with marching bands through a café-bus.

 “For the past few years I have been a volunteer on the café-bus, which travels to band parades and events to engage people in the Christian faith. While on the bus, I spend my time serving refreshments and chatting with people so they feel welcome – all done with a big smile! Each time I step onto the bus there is such joy in my heart as I serve the Lord and other people."
