Volunteers invited


Matthew 9:37–38
Then he said to his disciples
“The harvest is plentiful, but the labourers are few;
therefore pray earnestly to the Lord of the harvest to send out labourers into his harvest.”

“No one can do everything
But everyone can do something”

Thank you to all who volunteer their time to the various areas that help our church and services function, including those who keep the church clean, choir, altar servers, collectors, ushers, readers and Eucharistic ministers.

Our teams have grown a little smaller through the years. Many new people have joined our worshipping community. Could you volunteer to help?

Please contact us if you feel you could make a contribution on a rota basis.
