English Class Ministry Volunteers Needed: Weekly Teaching Assistants  and/or English Teachers to provide holiday cover.

Thomas Tsang (English Class Ministry Coordinator)

Volunteer Times:
Mondays: 10.45am – 1.30pm and/or  Wednesdays: 10.45am – 1.30pm


  1. The desire to show God’s grace and love through teaching English and building up intentional friendships with the students.
  2. Ability to plan and teach English classes lasting 1 hour and 45 minutes, which include a gospel component, such as a bible story. The classes last 2 hours, 11am – 1pm, including the break.
  3. Mandarin-speaking ability preferable though not necessary.

Ways to serve the Lord:

  1. Praying and planning with the English Class Ministry Team before and after the classes.
  2. Welcoming and building intentional friendships with the English class students at the Soho Outreach Centre. This involves helping them with learning English, chatting with the students during the break or over lunch, sensitively introducing the gospel to them and gently encouraging them to attend church and the Sunday bible study.
  3. Volunteer teachers would provide holiday cover. They would need to be able to plan and teach English classes lasting 1 hour and 45 minutes, which include a gospel component – such as a bible story.
  4. Regular prayer during personal devotional time: for the students, that they are able to learn English well, and discover more about God’s love, and for yourself as you serve the Lord in this area.
  5. Encouraging your small group and other church friends to pray for the students, and to support you in prayer in this ministry.
