Connect Volunteer Teams

Our Connect Volunteers work together in local teams to enthuse and equip churches and groups in their communities to take part in Operation Christmas Child by packing shoebox gifts. They also encourage local Christians to partner with us in prayer, to reach out in mission to their friends and local communities, and to sponsor The Greatest Journey; the exciting Bible discovery course offered to children who receive shoeboxes.

Join a Connect Volunteer Team to use your God-given gifting and interest in one of the following areas. As you inspire others in the UK to get involved, more children around the world will experience God’s love through a simple shoebox gift and get to discover, follow and share Jesus.
