Full time Volunteer Opportunities

Job Description

We are looking for Christians to join our team who want to participate in Christian ministry and outreach to international students, and those who want to experience life in an international Christian community with other Christians who live, work, worship and serve together.  Community members help to run this student residence and demonstrate God’s love through hospitality and service, but the main aim is to share the Gospel, introduce others to Jesus as their personal saviour and to make disciples.  Community membership would suit those who:

  • Want to explore a Christian vocation/calling
  • Feel called to “share their story” of what God has done in their lives and introduce others to Jesus
  • Want to grow in faith and learn to live out their faith more and more
  • Want to live adventurously with God, expecting Him to work supernaturally as we aim to see lives changed through an encounter with Jesus
  • Want to experience living in a Christian community
  • Want to explore a ministry of practical hospitality and service – demonstrating God’s love in the everyday by going the extra mile
  • Want to explore and learn more about God, the Bible and what it means to be a disciple, taking their faith seriously. Training is provided through the Lee Abbey London School of Ministry (LALSOM). 

 Community members are allocated to a work team (housekeeping, reception or maintenance) as there is practical work that needs to get done to keep our doors open. This work is a part of our ministry as serving others with love, kindness and generosity is what we feel God has called us to.  As we build friendships and connection with the students we want to look for opportunities to share our faith, invite them to Church and introduce them to Jesus. We expect God to work in our students’ lives and want to partner in this journey! 

 We have opportunities with flexible starting dates beginning in May, June July and September. Normally we prefer community members to commit to 12 months with us. Community members receive full board and lodging (usually in shared bedrooms) including all utilities and WiFi plus an allowance of £47.50 per week for subsistence purposes.
