Volunteering at events

Every year, thousands more people at events hear about and join the great work Tearfund does around the world.

It happens because people like you give your time to volunteer with Tearfund at Christian festivals and tours. So how about it? You could help us by:

Chatting to concert/festival-goers about our work.

Lending a hand at the Tearfund cafe. 

We’ll feed you and reimburse your basic expenses. Oh and you’ll have free entry to the event.

You’ll help raise our profile and, ultimately, help people lift themselves out of poverty. Here's where you can join us this year:

Our events this year


Over the summer we have a number of festivals that we recruit teams of volunteers for. We have a variety of different roles available and our summer 2020 events will be announced soon.


We have an exciting partnership with Big Church Live joining them on great tours up and down the country. At most Big Church Live events we have a couple of volunteers come an hour or so before doors open to help set up, man and pack down a resource table - we give volunteers more information on what this looks like specifically depending on the tour.


  • Cafe

    Coffee, brownies, great conversations...
    The Tearfund Cafe is a much loved mainstay at many of the biggest events. You’ll be on hand to serve festival goers delicious ethical drinks and snacks. Also you’ll get to chat with customers about Tearfund.

    You’ll be cheerful, practical, fairly fit and enjoy serving people, even when it gets busy (and it does!).

    Role Descriptions: Cafe Manager, Cafe Shift Leader, Cafe Team Member

    If you want everyone to know about the wonderful work Tearfund does, this could the role be for you.

    Get chatting to festival goers about Tearfund. Leave them excited and ready to support our work. You’ll be ready to chat to complete strangers. And you’ll need to be on your feet for quite a bit of the day, though there are regular breaks.
