Call for volunteers - can you help?
The Church, as with so many organisations,
survives on the good will and time of a number of volunteers. However, with our
increasingly busy lives, it is getting harder to secure volunteer hours. I
oversee 5 churches and within these communities there are many brilliant
volunteers doing an array of different jobs and experiencing the good things
that volunteering offers, such as community, conversation, meaning and purpose.
Having said that we are always on the look out for more.
It was Mahatma Ghandi who said
“The best way to find
yourself is to lose yourself in the service of others.” So, if
you would like to join us in helping to run and maintain our buildings and
community resources please do contact me on
especially if you care for the ancient churches of Turnstone, Vowchurch, Madley,
Tyberton and Peterchurch.
You don’t need to have a Christian faith,
just a love of either people or historic buildings or both! We will be able to
put together a volunteer package to suit you in terms of time and interests from
cleaning to some of our officers roles.
