Burton Youth for Christ
Burton Youth for Christ are about seeing young peoples lives changed by Jesus. Operating for over 30 years they have been developing Youth Work in Burton in a number of relevant ways. From assemblies, lessons, listening, youth clubs and events they have a great reputation for the work they do.
They have a number of voluntary roles that you can apply for and you can support them with prayer and finance. They run regular prayer breakfasts that you can attend to join the team praying for young people across the town.
Out every Saturday night, to be the hands and feet of Jesus on the streets of Burton on Trent. A team offer hot drinks, water, first aid and a listening ear for all those who are out for a night out. Working alongside the Police and local bars and restaurants they patrol the town centre ready to help those that need it.
All volunteers need to be 18+. They are always looking for more people to join a team so that they can expand the amount of days they go out. Currently they go out on a Saturday from 10pm to 2am. All training is provided and shifts can work around your schedule.
