Fresh Light volunteering opportunities

12.1.2018 | Congregational Life, Ministry, Church Life, Volunteering

The Presbyterian Church in Ireland is looking for volunteer counsellor supervisors for Fresh Light, its volunteer counselling ministry, which seeks to bring comfort, strength, peace, hope and transformation in the difficult seasons of people’s lives.

Operating from a Christian understanding of life and the world, volunteers are committed to standards of best practice and ethics in their counselling, a service which is open to adults and available to all faiths and none.

Speaking about the opportunity and the value placed on the ministry, David Thompson, secretary of the Council for Congregational Life and Witness, said, “Recent indications are that the counselling ministry provided by Fresh Light remains a valued part of the ministry of the Presbyterian Church in Ireland and a vital specialist supplement to the pastoral care provided in local congregations across Ireland.

“In order to ensure standards of good practice are maintained and to expand the reach of Fresh Light, the appointment of counselling supervisors is an important next step in the development of the service.

“We hope that those with supervision experience will be excited about offering their gifts to contribute to a ministry that offers the wisdom and love of Christ, in a practical way, to those most in need.”

The closing date for applications is Friday, 9th March 2018
