“VOLUNTEERING at the Jesus Centre has been very beneficial to my personal life.” says Edmund Kannu, “It has helped me to become more humble by serving others. In Africa, if you are a church leader you are to be served rather than to serve. At the Jesus Centre we learn to serve and reach out to others with a humble heart.”
Edmund, 45, has been a volunteer in the Bridge drop-in at Coventry Jesus Centre since 2010. Here destitute, homeless and often lonely people can come inside for some warmth, a shower and a free breakfast. There is also an on-site clothing bank, used much in cold weather, and a weekly food distribution point.
Born and brought up in Sierra Leone, Edmund was the son of a Muslim mother...
