This is a year of personal development and growth based in Birmingham, putting faith into action through projects connected to refugees/asylum seekers, inter religious dialogue, and justice and peace education.
The year includes a visit to learn about Columban mission in another culture (previous volunteers have visited the Philippines, the US/Mexico borderlands, Peru and South Korea).
Previous volunteers have said:
"Being the 'Faith in Action Volunteer' has been an amazing, varied role with lots of opportunities to learn and grow in my understanding of justice and peace.
I would highly recommend this role to anyone who wants to grow in their faith and understanding of how this can be actively lived. It's a year of learning, collaborative working, varied experiences, work with young people and lots of fun!"
"I have really enjoyed my time with the Columbans. I have learnt so much about the church, justice and peace, missionaries, refugees/migrations, a number of different organisations and mostly I have learnt a lot about myself and what my strengths are."
Provision: Volunteer package of covering accommodation, travel expenses and reimbursement of subsistence costs up to £90 per week
Hours: 35 hours per week (including some evenings and weekends which should be taken back in lieu)
Duration: Fixed-term for twelve months (9th September 2019 - 28th August 2020)
