Volunteer to Help


Our churches are blessed with a wealth of talent and abilities in their congregations who give of their time to carry out all manner of tasks to make everything run so well. And those involved find a great deal of camaraderie in doing so. There are so many areas in which involvement or help is welcomed, e.g.:


  • welcoming and coffee duties,
  • flower arranging and brass cleaning,
  •   church cleaning
  • singing in one of the choirs,
  • operating the sound system,
  • serving on the PCC or Deanery Synod,
  • assisting with the Sunday Friendship lunches and the Wednesday Lunch Club,
  • helping the children and youth in St. Mildred's Sunday Club or Emanate, or at St. Michael's,
  • reading lessons or saying the intercessions,
  • assisting with the magazine as an editor or a reporter,
  • bell ringing,
  • being involved in the Mothers' Union.

The list goes on and on and there is a place for anyone to help or become involved using their talents and abilities.


Have a look at the wide range of different activities shown in the website, and if you feel you would like to help or be involved in an area, or explore the possibility, contact the person shown for it, or speak to any of the clergy.



Current Needs!


Magazine Editors : We are looking for another person to join the magazine team to become an editor. We normally have 5 editors so each only has to produce 2 issues a year. We have a lively group consisting of the editors, roving reporters and representatives from the other 2 churches plus Lindsay as Chairman. We meet 10 times a year to plan the issue 2 months away, and to review what has been received for the issue 1 month away. We provide the software as well as training and help. Could this be you? If interested in finding out more please contact Neil de Villiers (01580 765 868) or talk to any of the magazine team.


Youth Work : We urgently need to find some willing people to help with the all-important work with our young people. So can you spare a little time to join the Friday night Emanate youth group rota or help swell the number of Sunday Club leaders? If you can, please get in touch with Shirley Docker (762492).


Coffee Rota : Or if you would like to join the Sunday morning coffee rota at St. Mildred’s, then please contact Jean Easto (01233 850960).


Aids Support : For many years we have supported a charity working with AIDS orphans in an African township. While our practical support is enormously appreciated, the orphans, their families, and the charity also need lots of prayer support, particularly concerning issues over which the charity has no control. A monthly prayer letter goes out to anyone who commits to regular prayer for this. Would you be willing to pray?  If so, please contact Lindsay.
