Church Engagement and Fundraising Officers inspire churches and individuals to be agents of change with Christian Aid, in order to overcome poverty. The CEFO’s specific contribution is to offer bespoke support, often face-to-face, to a defined set of churches and Christian Aid groups, to enable and enrich their contribution. CEFOs motivate churches, groups and individuals to raise money, but to also enable lasting change, the role works in partnership on campaigning activity with individual campaigners, churches and, where appropriate, other campaigning partners. This role will be covering Essex and Cambridgeshire and will be fully home-based.

As a Church Engagement and Fundraising Officer you are responsible for working alongside our Volunteer Officers to support and develop volunteers within your region, and to draw on the expertise of volunteers where possible. Church Engagement and Fundraising Officers are measured against clearly defined targets and success indicators.

You will manage a wide caseload of churches and Christian Aid groups across Essex and Cambridgeshire, in a way that inspires participation to give, act and pray with Christian Aid. You will ensure Christian Aid serves, inspires and equips the spectrum of churches to make an impact on poverty.

NightLite - Volunteer Care Team - Street Pastors
Drawn from local churches, Street Pastor volunteers patrol the streets in the centre of Cambridge from 10pm to 4am each Friday and Saturday night to help those in difficulty without judgement or discrimination. Well trained and fully equipped, the Street Pastors aim to provide a listening ear, practical help and Christian concern for all people, whether upset or sick or needing someone to talk to. Our sister project Nightlite (based in St Columbas Church Downing Street) also provides a safe place for people to wait, recover, find a listening ear or just chill out.        Website: Cambridge Street Pastors

Jimmy's Night Shelter
Jimmy's Night Shelter is heavily dependant on a wonderful volunteer team who support staff, serve meals, clear up, help make our guests comfortable and generally keep everything running smoothly. We are currently having a hard time filling volunteer shifts. Would you like to try out a shift or two, to both help us out and to give you a greater insight into the work of Jimmy's? And of course we'd be delighted if you were able to join us on a more permanent basis, working with us in a way that's convenient to you: weekly, fortnightly or monthly turns.     

Clothing Store Co-ordinator
Wintercomfort based on Victoria Avenue is the daycentre providing a range of support services to the homeless of Cambridge. A great opportunity to serve this project in a practical way whilst making contact with many of their service users has been announced. The clothing store based at the centre requires a coordinator to manage donated clothes and ensure the store is well organised - someone willing to give two daytime sessions a week (days and hours to be agreed) would be ideal but other offers would be considered.

Volunteer Hairdresser Wanted - Wintercomfort are looking for an experienced hairdresser to offer haircuts to their freshly shampooed clients on one or two mornings per month. We can supply clippers. Open mind and sense of humour essential.
