Columban Faith in Action Volunteer Programme

The Columban ‘Faith in Action’ programme is an appointment for enthusiastic young adults to join the Columban Mission team in Britain, to explore their faith through active participation in mission and to give their time, skills and energy in support of disadvantaged and vulnerable people.

Faith in Action Volunteer Catherine helps out at St. Chad's Sanctuary in Birmingham, providing support and solidarity to refugees and asylum seekers.

The programme offers young adults the chance to put faith into action through projects and activities connected to refugees and asylum seekers, inter faith initiatives and justice and peace education.

Based in Birmingham, a lively and culturally diverse city with the youngest urban population in Europe, the volunteers will live in community with others and will be accompanied by two experienced mentors.
