St Agnes with St Paul and St Barnabas

Everyone is welcome in our churches, welcome to observe, to join in with our worship and welcome to get involved in the running of our churches and the parish
There are many and varied ways to help or volunteer, from ringing the bell before the service, to welcoming in our congregation and our visitors (we call our welcomers Sidespeople), to even preaching the sermon! There is no need to make a long term commitment, try things out (with full support) to see if it suits or to confirm a calling.

Here are some activities we need volunteers for, or we are considering for our chuches:

Calling all fun lovers! We have a great team that plans our social events and meets 4 times a year to do this. We need a new chair and some extra members (including at least 1 person from St Barnabas). Would you like to recommend someone or come on the team yourself? Please speak to the clergy or wardens.

St Agnes congregation would like to add to the rota of sacristans; people who will arrive early to prepare for Holy Communion services. Please speak to Mark or Debbie, the wardens, if you are interested.

St Agnes bell ringing -
Would anyone like to take on the bell? Full training given.
Give it a try, no obligation!

Help Change the Lives of Children in our Community

Indy Nottage our Youth and Community Project Co-ordinator writes “I need a few people to assist with running children's activity afternoons through the summer. This would be between 4 and 6pm, however the exact dates are flexible until we have a big enough team.  There are be 6 sessions for people to get involved with and I'd prefer people to be at all or most of them” trampoline.jpg

 For St Paul’s can anyone help with flower arranging (money provided), washing and ironing the communion table linen please?

At St Paul’s and St Barnabas we are exploring opportunities to seek musicians to help in our worship. Please pray about this and, if you are aware of any possible people, please do speak to the clergy.  

Please ask one of our Sidespeople in church or talk to or email one of our Clergy.
