Voluntary Programme

The Voluntary Initiative Program (VIP) is an opportunity for youth from around the world to visit The Coptic Orthodox Church Centre in the UK and to serve under the guidance of HG Bishop Angaelos within any CYM ministry.

The term ‘VIP’ often refers to somebody who is privileged, for whom things are done, however our concept of a ‘VIP’ is a person who does things for others, as inspired by the account in the Book of Isaiah, “Also I heard the voice of the Lord, saying: “Whom shall I send, And who will go for Us?” Then I said, “Here am I! Send me.” (Isaiah 6:8). All are invited and welcome to serve.
