I currently work in two lay ministry roles and would love the opportunity to take this further in the near future. I recognise that I am very lucky: each day I have a roof over my head, I eat and sleep in a warm place and I am well. However, education is beyond my pay bracket but strongly believe that being educated would enable me to be a better minister. Currently, my feesalook to be £5,000 pounds and I will need some money to live off over the year, which is why I have asked for £8,000. I recognise there are many people like me who need funding, especially in the arts - my course is a Biblical Studies Research Masters - but wouldn't it be great if we could all just give a little towards each other sometimes. That is why I have suggested just a pound donation - imagine if 8,000 people could give just a £1. What an amazing random act of kindness that would be. Thanks to all who read this, thanks for taking the time.
