Become a Trussell Church Ambassador

Help us inspire churches across the UK to live out their faith in God’s love, and take action against hunger and poverty.

Our vision is for a UK without the need for food banks. We believe everyone should have enough money to cover the cost of essentials including food.

We believe that the Church has a unique role to play in this, and as a Church Ambassador you can make a difference.

Local churches are rooted in their communities and are connected to the structures and institutions that can help create social change. Church communities include thousands of people whose collective voice can be a powerful advocate for justice.

What does a Church Ambassador do?

You’ll empower your church to be part of our movement for change in three key ways:

Encouraging support for your local food bank

Inspiring people to use their voice to call for change

Building community with people who have experience of poverty and hunger

Ambassadors help churches and food banks to embody Micah 6:8, to act justly, to love mercy, and to walk humbly with your God.

How will we support you?

As a Trussell Church Ambassador you will be part of a UK-wide team of volunteers who will have access to:

  • Regular training webinars to equip you to confidently talk to your church community about issues of injustice and how they can be part of bringing change.
  • Online meetings with other Trussell Church Ambassadors.
  • Resources and activations to share with your church community to help them take action.
  • Inspirational videos, podcasts and materials from the Trussell Trust (and our partners) that will support you to take steps to end injustice, exclusion, and bring people together in community.
  • Bespoke support from the Trussell Trust team to reflect on your journey towards justice and community.

  • Are part of a local church community.
  • Share our vision and values of compassion, justice, community and dignity.
