Once you have completed your details and we have taken references (this can take several weeks) you will be able to sign-up to the Leeds Festival Angels team. Other Festival Angels teams are also available for sign-up on Bloomerang.
Our volunteering sign-up for most Festival Angels teams is carried out via Bloomerang (InitLive) - click here. You will need to sign up for the Organisation Festival Angels and once approved (once we have heard back from your reference) then you can add yourself to the different Festival Angels 2024 Opportunities.
Please note new volunteers will need:
Passport / Driving Licence Details;
Reference Details (Name, Email, Phone, Position);
Credit Card Details;
Picture suitable for use on name badges.
The process will take a few weeks as we need to email out for references.
Who: Volunteers drawn chiefly from the breadth of the Christian Church, working alongside and without prejudice, with those of any or no faith regardless of age, gender, disability, ethnicity or sexual orientation.
What: Seek to celebrate and promote a Christian presence by offering an exemplary service of care for the practical, emotional and spiritual needs of festival goers, staff and other volunteers. Provide safe spaces for others to share, explore and pray and respond to questions which may present opportunity to share something of our own faith journeys as they explore theirs.
Why: Following the example of Christ who cared and accepted without judgement, and responded to the diverse physical, practical and spiritual needs of all those before him.
Some feedback from Leeds Festival Angels volunteers:
"It was a wonderful experience for , it was humbling & a privilege supporting those at the Festival as well as my fellow Angels. I felt as an Angel we got looked after extremely well too. I do think the role of the Angels is so important. Those youngsters at the Festival really needed those drinks, at night they were warm and comforting and in a morning they were dehydrating. Looking forward to being an Angel next year"
