We’d love for you to be involved fully in the life of our church. You may have a particular gift we don’t know about, like counselling, plumbing or IT, or you may have some time and are willing to help out.
Crèche and Sunday school leaders and helpers: we love our children and young people have a great and dedicated team, but always need more help. You’d be committing to leading or helping a Sunday school group session up to about 3 or 4 times a term. You don’t have to do it forever, but you will need a DBS and to fill in some forms to comply with the Diocese safer recruitment procedure and do some online safeguarding training. If you are able to help please speak to or email Sarah.
We’d love you to join the rota for Bible readings and Intercessions during church, help with setting up and refreshments. You can tell us how often you’re available to help and we won’t put you on the rota too often. Speak to Sheila at St Paul’s or Penny at St Faith’s.
If you are musical and can sing or play an instrument we’d love to involve you, as sung worship is so important to our services. Please tell us if you can play an instrument, and we will involve you in what’s going on each week. We also have a fabulous choir that sing at special events, often at Christmas.
It doesn’t stop there because we want to open an after school club and so if you have some time, perhaps once a week or once a fortnight to pop along from 3.30 – 5pm and help young people with their homework, that would be a real gift, (especially if you happen to be a retired teacher!). Watch this space as this develops.
If you’d like to do even more, and get involved more in the leadership and direction of the church, then there are plenty of opportunities to dive in, whether it’s the PCC, leading Morning Prayer, helping to organise prayer and other evangelistic events, or if you have a BIG IDEA you’d love to get off the ground, just speak to Sarah.
