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 Pete and Barbara, our Churchwardens, or you can                            here.                                       

CLEANING ROTA

We need a number of people to join a cleaning rota on a Wednesday morning, to help keep our church clean and safe.  The more people who join the rota, the fewer times you will be asked to clean.  Please let Barbara Pollard know if you can help or if you would like more information about what is involved.  

 

SAFEGUARDING OFFICER

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, Pete Hargreaves or Barbara Pollard

ENVIRONMENTAL REPRESENTATIVE

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. 

For more information speak to Rev Shelagh, or one of our Churchwardens, Pete Hargreaves or Barbara Pollard 

FUND RAISING

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.
