City Ministry Development through a ‘Global Volunteer Day’ Campaign—Brussels, Belgium
Abstract
Project summary: Working on a ‘Global Volunteer Day’ as a tool towards effective and comprehensive city ministry in one of the most secular parts of Europe, through public engagement Project rationale: Justice and compassion is maybe the only area of Christian ministry that is still quite positively perceived by the un‐churched and de‐churched, which form the majority of Belgians and Brussels‐dwellers. The Project will aim to use the church’s resources in order to promote the Christian approach to Justice and Compassion through Public Engagement, in a campaign centred on 11/11/2011, tentatively called the ‘Global Volunteer Day.’ The vehicle used for this is an existing project in the context of Serve the City, a ministry and network which started in Brussels in 2005, now present in 70+ cities worldwide [www.servethecity.be]1. It should also be noted that 2011 has be designated European Year of Volunteering by the European Union.
