Volunteer with Barnabas Aid

We can’t do it alone. We need your help.

Prayer Group Leader

We are so grateful that many supporters already pray for the suffering and persecuted Church and in this way already partner with us in prayer. However, if you would like to create a dedicated prayer group, we invite you to become a Barnabas Prayer Group Leader. You will be provided with a Prayer Group Starter Pack, and regular prayer updates.

Can you represent Barnabas Aid’s food.gives project at your local church? Collect donations of food from your church family and organise for them to be transported to one of our food.gives hubs around the UK. If you live near Swindon, Wiltshire, come and help us sort and pack the food donations in our warehouse, from where we ship them to suffering Christians worldwide.

We are looking for individuals who have experience in public speaking (and possibly preaching) to give a voice to Christians around the world who cannot speak for themselves.

Speakers may be approached by Barnabas Aid to speak at a few engagements a year in local churches and Christian groups that fit in with their schedule. Speakers may also initiate their own speaking engagements. You are provided with information and materials including PowerPoint presentations.
