Kelly’s Volunteer Story

South East England

Kelly volunteers at one of our projects, providing a drop-in church on Sunday afternoons for individuals with complex lifestyles and complicated needs, in South East England,

What’s it like volunteering at your project?

“It can stressful volunteering with the people we work with – we jokingly say “but nobody died” – sometimes this feels like it might be an option, but God gives us the words to calm things down.

I’m thankful for building community.

How have you changed since volunteering?

“I am more aware that we don’t know it all. I am constantly surprised at the openness of the people we serve and the effect their stories have on me, changing me.”

What have others said to you about your volunteering?

That I am a safe person for people to “emotionally vomit” at! The project lead tells me I am amazing!
