A Gift of Your Time


We welcome all who give their time, creativity, skills and energy.  

WellSpring simply could not operate without volunteers who generously and enthusiastically share their time, energy and wisdom. The value of your gift is inestimable, and our community is richer because of what you offer.  Thank you!

There are many ways in which you can contribute to WellSpring as a volunteer:

Spiritual Companioning student support 

Be a pilgrim for a student studying Art of Spiritual Companioning

During their training in spiritual companioning, students are required to meet a number of pilgrims. This is an important part of their formation and learning. For some students, their broader community may not be familiar with spiritual companioning, so if you can be a pilgrim, it is a valuable gift to the student.

To explore this possibility, please contact our Program Director, Anne Pate, who will match you with a student. 


Host a student studying Art of Spiritual Companioning in July or October 

Could you accommodate a WellSpring spiritual companioning student who lives interstate and or in regional Victoria for two nights during their intensives? Dates: Thursday 18th July and Friday 19th July AND /   OR  Thursday 24th October and Friday 25th October.  Students now stay in Air BnB or hotels. If you can help, please contact Kathy


Morning tea during intensives 

Could you assist with set up and serving of morning tea during the July intensive 18th to 20th July? If you can help, please contact Kathy.

Facilitating prayers, quiet days and professional development  

Come share your experience and wisdom with the community and beyond. 

We are planning a winter and Advent contemplative prayer series at WellSpring on Thursday evenings in July and December. Come facilitate one or more sessions. Share your ideas for quiet or Soul Nurture days and PD with contact Kathy Cave, our Managing Director, here,

Are you at ease in the digital world? Our website is dynamic, and in constant need of updating and maintaining. Add your unique artistic perspective to refresh the images and look of the WellSpring website; or help with creating helpful content, updating events; or maintaining links with our partners such as Ashburton Baptist Church and Whitley College. Please contact Kathy Cave, our Managing Director, here, if you are interested in contributing to our website. 

Membership Coordinator

We need help to manage the annual renewal process, and to facilitate engagement among WellSpring members. If you have skills and ideas in this area, please contact Kathy Cave, our Managing Director, here. 


WellSpring needs someone at the front office for part of each weekday to welcome visitors and to take phone calls, and our special events always call for extra people to help prepare beforehand, and organise details on the day. If hospitality is your calling, please contact us to find out how you can help.

We need help with hosting Brooke Prentis,  an Aboriginal Christian leader on Saturday 1 June and with the Formation Intensives on Thursday 18th July and Friday 19th July.

WellSpring Library

If you love books and are keen to see more of the WellSpring community reading the many books in the library, please contact us with your ideas. Our honorary Librarian is ready to hand over this role to someone else. Contact her to find out more.
