The good news of Jesus – the Suffering Servant – is that it frees us to want to serve Him. At St Nicholas there are many opportunities to serve the church family. Why not pray about where you can serve?’
Once you have settled into a congregation, then we would encourage you to complete the form below to register your interest.
Help ensure that every person who comes through our doors feels welcome and comfortable. This role involves greeting people at the door and making an effort to talk to new people or anyone who might be on their own.
Help ensure the service begins and ends smoothly. This role involves greeting people on arrival, handing out service sheets, helping visitors to find a suitable seat and ensuring the church is left tidy after a service.
An essential part of our welcome, being on the car park team means you can assist in directing traffic to provide smooth access to and from the car park. This is especially important at guest services and special events.
From 0-18, there are many opportunities to serve our children and young people. All those who serve in this area of ministry will be required to have DBS clearance and to undertake some safeguarding training.
During services & other events the sound desk and AV system need to be set up and operated. This is a great opportunity to be part of the “Gallery Team”. Training will be provided at either venue.
Refreshments are provided either before or after services, at special events in Church, at midweek meetings etc. There are also opportunities to prepare meals for those who need a helping hand due to illness or difficult family situations.
Each congregation has a dedicated team of musicians who lead our congregations in song each week. This role involves practicing and rehearsing in advance of services as well as packing up afterwards.
This is a great opportunity to ensure our neighbours are invited to special events or kept up to date with things like our Christmas programme by popping publicity through the doors of those who live in our Parish.
An opportunity to meet with some of those who live locally and don’t have English as their first language. Conversation practice is offered – currently on a Friday – in two groups: one for Ukrainian Refugees and one more general group.
The flowers on display at the front of church are arranged each week by a lovely team of flower arrangers. If this appeals to your creative side, then you would be most welcome to join the Flower Team.
There are many other ways you could choose to serve at St Nic’s. We’d love to chat to you more about your various skills and gifts to help you work out where you might fit. Complete the form below or get in touch with the office for a chat!
