Go On Mission with Life2Romania in 2017
Download the 2017 Information for Volunteers here
Every year we invite volunteers from both the UK and Romania to go on mission with Life2Romania. Each Summer we take teams to the towns and villages to run holiday clubs and camps where the children can hear and respond to the Gospel. Churches are transformed as more families are invited into the family of God. Volunteers are transformed as God works in and through them as they serve.
All UK volunteers are required to attend a training weekend in the UK, usually in June. Additionally, where there are specific local needs volunteers will be required to attend an additional training day in Romania immediately prior to the holiday club week.
Each team consists of 3 or more volunteers from both the UK and Romania. All volunteers must profess the Christian faith. We confirm suitability of applicants using personal references and the UK Disclosure and Barring Service. There are places on every team for those with no experience of children’s work so please don’t let lack of experience deter you from applying to be a volunteer.
Holiday clubs benefit from having teams containing individuals with a range of skills and experience. Some volunteers will have the gift of standing at the front, lead music, craft or games whilst others are gifted in helping and supporting ‘behind the scenes’. All of these gifts are essential and will be well used. Prayer is essential and personal testimony is a powerful tool for conveying the reality of God in the world and these gifts are encouraged in our teams.
Teams often choose to meet a few times to prepare for their week. This might be face-to-face or via internet video conference. The UK and Romanian volunteers prepare each day together and grow as a team. It is always difficult to say goodbye to new friends at the end of the week.
