Many people volunteer across our churches to help with aspects of church worship: welcomers/sidesmen/sideswomen, servers, lay ministers of communion, lesson readers, intercessors, audio-visual operators, flower arrangers and refreshment helpers. Others volunteer for the church councils and committees, as members, secretaries, treasurers and planned giving recorders. Different groups of volunteers share their time and skills in other ways, such as organising the hiring and maintenance of churches, churchyards and church halls, holding social events, running the church bookstall and producing the monthly parish magazine.
Importantly, many of our members are actively serving in the world, as part of their jobs, in charities or through work for social justice.
If you have time or talents you feel called to offer talk to someone in church, or contact the Parish Office.
If you sense a call to a formal lay ministry in church (for example, preaching and teaching as a Reader) or feel that God is calling you to be a deacon or priest, one of the clergy will be delighted to talk to you.
