Can You Help?
As a small church in a small community, there are many opportunities for people to help, either on a regular basis, or as a one-off activity. We have a great group of volunteers at the moment but there is always room for more. You don't need to be a member of our regular congregation to get involved - everyone is welcome.
Below is a list of activities for which we would really value your help. If you would like to join in, please speak to any of our congregation, including Anne and Barbara, our Churchwardens, or you can contact us here.
Our current safeguarding officer is wishing to step down. This is an important role, ensuring that any vulnerable people who visit St Stephen's church are safe from risks or potential hazards. No previous experience necessary as training will be offered. For further information or to offer help, please contact Rev. Shelagh, or one of our Churchwardens, Anne Dyer or Barbara Pollard
We need a volunteer to be our Environmental Representative and to help to ensure that we meet our environmental goals. The role would involve liaising with the PCC to help us to develop an environmental policy and to make changes to the way we run our church so that we become as environmentally-friendly as possible. No previous experience in this area is needed - we just need someone who has an interest in environmental issues to help us.
SERVING REFRESHMENTS AFTER THE SUNDAY SERVICE
We need volunteers to help serve the refreshments after our Sunday services at St Stephen's. This will including bringing milk and biscuits (tea and coffee will be in the kitchen), serving and washing up the mugs afterwards. The more people included in the rota, the less frequently you will be called on. please let Helen Beaumont know if you can help out.
As we start planning for repairs to the roof, we need to think about how to raise the money to pay for this. Any ideas about fundraising would be greatly appreciated and, even more so, if you could volunteer to run an event or similar to help raise much needed funds. Please see Barbara if you think you can help.
