There’s always something to do at St John’s on a Sunday, and our volunteers are the ones who help make the service run smoothly. Most roles are light and the more people willing to help means you may only be asked once or twice per quarter.

The sort of things that need doing are:

  • Aisle duty – handing out bulletins and collecting, then counting the offering
  • Morning tea – making and serving the tea & coffee after the service
  • Greeting – welcoming regulars and visitors with a smile and a handshake
  • Bell ringing – this is a fun one, ringing the bell just before church starts
  • Bible reading – speaking the Word of God to the congregation
  • Creche duty – looking after babies and pre-schoolers in the Chapel during the service – cuddles guaranteed!
  • Prayers for Others – praying for all those who need God’s help (training available)
  • Sound  System operators – sitting at the sound desk in the balcony ensuring the sound and light systems are activated at the correct times (training available)

There are no age limits on any of the roles, parent and child combinations work well, as do friends who want to be scheduled together. If you have been attending St John’s for years, or just a little while, and are ready to play your part, put your name and contact details on the list on the table in the foyer or contact Linda van Milligan, the roster coordinator.
