What’s it about?

Church can be scary if you’re new! If you like chatting to visitors and making them feel welcome then join our very smiley team at one of the welcome stations.
 
How can I help?

Our welcome team runs on a rota where you will be put on to help out one Sunday a month. Also look out for our events or special services - we always need folk on hand to warmly welcome our visitors and point them in the right direction.

Worship

Worship

What’s it about?
 
Worship is a big part of our services and events but it’s not only on Sundays and it’s not just music!
 
How can I help?

Our services are diverse so there is the opportunity for different styles of worship. If you are a singer or play an instrument then contact us to arrange a meeting so we can learn more.

Reach

REACH Ministry

What’s it about?

Reach is the name of our outreach ministry and there are lots of ways to get stuck in!
 
How can I help?

From Alpha to refugees, helping in the cafe to serving the homeless, from lunch clubs to going into schools as part of the MARS team to lead relationship discussions. However you want to REACH out, there is something for you. There are regular teams and also one-off responses wherever there is a need.

Kids

Kids Ministry
 
What’s it about?

Sunday is funday! Join the kids team and spend an hour singing, dancing and sharing Bible stories with the next generation.
 
How can I help?

We’d like you to join a regular team on one (or more, if you like!) Sunday a month during our 10.45am service. We also offer a creche at some of our events, so if you can’t commit on a Sunday but would still like to be on team, we’d love to hear from you. (This team all need to have a DBS check).

Youth

Youth Ministry
 
What’s it about?


We have a fantastic group of 11-18 year olds who have heaps of infectious energy, amazing talents and a never-ending number of questions. There’s sports, arts, Bible study and residential camps during the year.
 
How can I help?
 

We’d love you to join the regular team helping with the younger or older youth groups. They meet on a Sunday and also have evening cell groups during the week, as well as a youth club on a Friday night. You don’t have to do every group. Let us know what you can offer! (This team will need a DBS check).

Facilities

Facilities
 
What’s it about?

If you are more of a practical, hands-on person, then this team is for you!
 
How can I help?

You will help us keep the Church running smoothly by moving chairs, setting up and clearing down events and services, maintaining the Churchyard, gardening or doing simple maintenance jobs. Some roles are seasonal, some regular and some are one-off when needed.

Hospitality and Refresh

Hospitality and Refresh Minist

What’s it about?

A big part of our welcome and outreach is providing for others, whether that’s a cup of coffee at one of our services or a hot meal at our Community Lunch. Volunteering on our 
Hospitality team offers a variety of opportunities. ‘Refresh’ is our hospitality team who serve on Sundays at the main services.
 
How can I help?

There are cakes to bake and sell in our cafe,  refreshments to serve at courses and the hot drinks, ‘refresh’ on Sundays. Some of these teams run regular rotas but we also need a bank of cooks and servers to call on for special events. We’d love to have you on board, even if you don’t think you have much time to offer. Serving refreshments once a month at your favourite service would help us enormously.

Production

Production
 
What’s it about?

All our services and events are our gift to God, so we want them to be the very best they can be. We want the sound, the light and the pictures to all come together in praise to

complement the music and teaching.
 
How can I help?

The sound desk and visual media system are ideal for somebody who loves technology. There is regular training to keep up to date and you can sign up for as much or as little as you choose. Come and have a taster session to give it a go!

Media

Media

What’s it about?
Technology moves fast and we want to be right up to date with the ways we reach people, through art, photography, creative media, video and more.
 
How can I help?

If you are a photographer, an artist, a designer or technician - either digital or print, we would love you to get in touch! Also, if you are a photographer with your own equipment, ask about photographing one of our daytime or evening events!
