We Need Your Help
This is your opportunity to seek Gods face. It really depends on volunteers like you to engage. That's why 10 Days of Prayer needs you to make this happen. Every little bit helps!
Certain roles will need you to turn up an amount of time prior to the session (see role descriptions). Please try to arrive in time for being briefed for the session.
Please fill out the volunteer form (see HOW TO VOLUNTEER, below) to send your contact details and availability to our team who will then contact you.
