We need more people and more churches to become involved with Acts 435. We especially need more people to be advocates. The advocates meet with people who need money, and put their requests on the Acts 435 website. Advocates will be given training and ongoing support. The amount of time that advocates need to give will vary according to the church and the needs of the area, and can be flexible.
If you want to be an advocate, you'll need to be a worshipping member of your church community. You'll need a heart for those in need and a desire to help make a difference. You will need to be honest and trustworthy, and able to keep confidences. You will need to be a willing volunteer who will take a pro-active role in ensuring Acts 435 is promoted within the Church and its wider community.
It is important that Parochial Church Council (PCC), Vestry or the senior leadership in your Church is informed and supportive of what Acts 435 is trying to achieve. It is crucial that the local church develops a sense of ownership and that the advocates operate with and under the authority of the church's leadership.
