Time for God Volunteer
Hello, my name is Hannah Meyer, I'm from the south of Germany and am 19 years old.
After finishing school in July 2019, I started my year as a volunteer worker from "Time for God" at St Andrews Methodist Church in Harlow at the beginning of September 2019.
You can find me in many different activities from the church, e.g. in Bible Studys or at the coffee mornings, but mainly I'm going to work with children and teenagers in groups of different ages.
In my freetime, I really enjoy singing and dancing, as well, as cooking and baking.
Back in Germany, I used to live together with my parents and my little sister, who is 14 years old, in a small town called Crailsheim, where we moved 8 years ago.
Together with my friends, I organised a few events at school, e.g. charity runs or activities for christmas. I really enjoyed my last few years, but now it's time for something new. That's why I decided to do this gap year. I would like to get in contact with many new people, see many places in the UK, learn more about my faith an myself, improve my english skills and give my time and ideas to St. Andrews.
As my dad is a pastor in a Methodist Church in Germany, I'm used to the life in a church and I know about the variety of tasks there, which is great! However, we never had a big number of youths in our church and we're a really small church in general. This is, why I'm looking forward to all the different aspects of my work and especially to be in contact with many different great people.
I'm sure it's going to be a wonderful year!
