GETTING INVOLVED

We couldn’t do the things we do without the generosity and goodwill of volunteers.

A willing heart is all you need and if any training is required it will be given.

There are lots of ways in which you can contribute.   Have a look at the list below – if there is something that interests you, please contact us.

Intercessors

Join the rota of people who lead the intercessions during services.

Intercessors lead the congregation in praying for other people, for our community, for the Church, for the world and for God’s kingdom. You can pray by yourself or intros or threes with friend/ family.  We would be especially delighted to have family groups willing to pray for the family services.
