Ignite Lite is a group for those aged 16 – 35 who want to be involved in youth ministry within the Diocese of East Anglia but are unable to be full-time members of the Ignite Team due to work commitments, school, university etc. They are invited to help with as much or as little of the team’s work around the Diocese as they wish.
As a member of Ignite Lite you could choose to volunteer in a number of different ways. You could, for example, find yourself helping with the practical side of events, like setting-up, planning and catering, or you may wish to help us to deliver Christ-centred talks, activities or music to children and young people. The list of possiblities is almost endless!
Volunteers from Ignite Lite play an especially important role in the planning and delivery of larger Youth Service events, such as the Ignite Festival and Epiphany Candlelight Mass. It is also possible for work with Ignite Lite to count as volunteering hours for awards schemes such as the Duke of Edinburgh Award and Faith in Action.
The Ignite Lite group also meets up several times a year for training and discipleship weekends with the Ignite Team, receiving teaching and training in youth ministry, spending time together as a team and, importantly, praying and growing in our Catholic faith. To find out if there’s one planned soon, visit our Events page.
Joining Ignite Lite is a great way to serve others, share your faith and even grow your own relationship with Christ. We are always looking for new members.
