Time for God


In September each year, Emmanuel welcomes a volunteer from Time for God. Volunteers live with host families and are involved in many aspects of church life. Some of their stories appear below. Through this scheme, lives are changed and faith enriched – both for the volunteers and our congregation.

If you are interested in applying to be a Time for God volunteer, please do not contact Emmanuel URC directly, but apply to Time for God.



We welcome our new Time for God volunteer, Michael from Bielefeld, Germany, on 1st September 2017
