Join the Missio family!

We rely on our amazing volunteers to further the work of mission. Missionaries around the world couldn’t do what they do without people like you.

Our volunteers bring the Missio family together, sharing the work of missionaries overseas, encouraging people to pray and fundraise, collecting Red Boxes and delivering our Mission Today magazine, or helping to build our online community.


If you have a heart for mission, a bit of energy, and a few hours a week to spare, we’d love to hear from you! 

Fired up but don’t know where to start?

Don’t worry.  We’ll give you all the training you need before you start, and keep supporting you throughout your volunteering journey. After all, when you join our team of volunteers, you become part of the worldwide Missio family – and that’s what families do!

Together we can ignite God’s love

There are lots of different ways to become involved as a volunteer, and you can choose depending on how much time you have and what your calling is. At every level, we will always support and guide you, and be there to answer any questions.

About Missio, Mill Hill and the APF

You may be more familiar with the names ‘Mill Hill’ and ‘APF’ than the name ‘Missio’, although if you have a newer Red Box you’ll know our logo. Here’s how it works:

Donations through the Red Box are shared 60/40 between Missio and the Mill Hill Missionaries. Missio’s share continues the work of the APF; supporting the spread of the Gospel overseas and enables faith communities to grow and flourish. This is the work begun by Blessed Pauline Jaricot in 1822. You can find out more about this inspiring laywoman’s work and legacy here>>

The Mill Hill Missionaries’ share supports the formation and training of its future missionaries and supports Mill Hill parishes most in need. 

You can find a more complete picture of how Missio works on our About Us page.
