  • Volunteer Chaplains needed in Horsham

    Type: Other By: Diocese of Chichester When:

    Could you make a real difference to the lives of vulnerable young people at Horsham Y Centre (YMCA)?

    At YMCA Horsham, part of YMCA DownsLink group, we are looking for volunteer chaplains to help run an informal weekly chaplaincy evening to support the residents of Horsham Y Centre. This project houses 50 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 Horsham Y Centre 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 we do? 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 would work in a small team and have some training and support, including an experienced Volunteer Chaplaincy Coordinator, Judi Cox. Our chaplaincy service has been established at Horsham Y Centre for 4 years and is deeply valued by staff and young people.

    Chaplaincy takes place on Thursdays evenings from 9.30-11pm. We would ask for a commitment of one evening every 2-3 weeks. There is more information here

    Interested? Contact Judi Cox, Volunteer Chaplaincy Coordinator (Horsham) on judi@youthworker.plus.com or Lucy McGrath, Lead Chaplain or lucy.mcgrath@ymcadlg.org

  • Bishop's Champions for Family Support Work

    Type: Other By: Diocese of Chichester When:

    We are looking to recruit volunteer Bishop's Champions to support and enhance the work of Family Support across the diocese.

    Chichester Association for Family Support Work is a diocesan charity that seeks to work with families in need. It has a particularly strong role in areas of deprivation.

    The Champions will play a key role in helping FSW meet its strategic objectives to strengthen the links between the Association and the Diocese, increase awareness of its work, and optimise income generation. They will promote the charity’s work within one of the Archdeaconries of the Diocese by delivering talks to local networks and organisations.

    This role will help ensure that the Churches become aware of our existence and understand what we do and how to access our services. Another key part of the role will be to support fundraising in line with the strategic funding plan making the Director and Director of Fundraising and Marketing aware of potential leads and new funds that are available locally.

    You will have the ability to inspire people about the work of FSW and be a confident communicator with good organisational skills. Some experience of fundraising would be an advantage. This is a voluntary role, but all expenses will be paid. We anticipate it may take up to 16-24 hours per month.
