  • YMCA Crawley - volunteer chaplains

    Type: Other By: Diocese of Chichester When:

    Girl in a jacket

    Could you make a real difference to the lives of vulnerable young people (16-25) in Crawley?

    At YMCA Crawley, part of the YMCA DownsLink group, we are currently looking for volunteer chaplains to help run an informal weekly chaplaincy evening, centred on a meal, to support the residents of Crawley Foyer. This project houses 45 young people at any one time, aged 16-25, most of whom stay around 2 years. These young people are usually homeless – i.e. they cannot live at home or do not have a home for a variety of reasons. Our work is challenging but Crawley Foyer is a place where young people can get support and encouragement to turn their lives around.

    Could you be a volunteer chaplain and add real value to the work that we do? As a volunteer chaplain, you will come alongside the young people to listen and support. We are looking for people of faith who are kind, good listeners, non-judgemental, with a sense of humour and a love of young people. You will be part of a small team, and have some training and support. Our chaplaincy service has been established at other centres for a number of years and has been deeply valued by staff and young people. We are now creating a new team of chaplains for the Crawley Foyer.

    Chaplaincy will take place on Tuesday evenings from 6.00-8.00pm, based around a meal. We would ask for a commitment of one evening every 2-3 weeks.

    Interested? Please contact Sue Anson (YMCA Chaplain for North Sussex) for more details, on: 07557855779 or sue.anson@ymcadlg.org
