Doing All We Can

All We Can greatly values the dedicated individuals who share and promote our work in their churches and communities, and encourage others to get involved. On the 25-26 April 2015 we welcomed volunteers and supporters from across Britain to ‘Doing All We Can’, a 24-hour residential event. This was an opportunity to inspire these important activists with stories of the work being carried out by our local partners across the world, and equip them to continue making a difference in their local roles.

“This event was a great celebration. It was an opportunity for All We Can to say a big thank you for the continued and passionate commitment of its volunteers and supporters, and reflect on the encouraging progress made in the year since the relaunch as All We Can. It was also a time where through the sharing of stories from All We Can’s work, we could all learn of the vital difference it is making in some of the world’s poorest communities. It was a wonderful weekend and such a good time for us to find out more about all the things people are doing around Britain for All We Can.”

(Claire Welch, Churches and Volunteers Co-ordinator)

During the weekend there was a moving reflection session led by former President of Conference, Revd Alison Tomlin; a personal introduction to our new harvest resources for 2015 with special guest Rahel Hiletework from our partner ADHENO in Ethiopia; and a session exploring the current Climate Coalition campaign. There were also lots of opportunities for volunteers to share with each other, worship together, and think of new ways to take the message of All We Can into their churches and communities:

“It was a very inspiring weekend! All We Can’s work was communicated with great passion, vision and clarity. I feel excited to be taking this inspiration back to my local church and circuit.”

(Hannah Baker, Volunteer Coordinator, London)

“The Doing All We Can weekend was great! I enjoyed everything and appreciated all the sessions. Thank you for keeping worship at the centre of the event.”

(Diane Robinson, Volunteer Coordinator, Scarborough)

“It was a pleasure to meet so many All We Can staff and supporters including inspiring people like Rahel from Ethiopia.”

(Ian Beaumont, Volunteer Speaker)
