Paul Evans

I am employed as a verger on a part-time basis at St Alphege. The role is partly one of preparing the church for services to take place and it also has a pastoral element in welcoming, and encouraging those that use the church. I had previously had many years’ experience of working in caring environments and believe this is a useful tool in the nurturing role in which I now work. It is imperative in this role to present a friendly face in dealing with visitors and worshippers to encourage their faith to grow. I believe that in working with others in the team I can help to promote the faith – it is not just the job of one person. The role requires skill in dealing with those who give of their time voluntarily – without which the church could not operate.
