Helping out with our Social Action projects: This is one of the areas in which our newcomers to Christ Church are often most enthusiastic to be involved. The Grapevine lunch which meets on the first Sunday of each month always needs more helpers to cook, serve food or wash up! Those who have got involved with such projects have found them some of their most worthwhile and fulfilling experiences. This whole area of our mission at Christ Church is overseen by Sarah Parker who is the person to speak to if you would like to be involved.
Helping our with our Children’s and Youth Work: One of the results of becoming a ‘Sssh-free Church’ is that we now have some 250 children coming regularly to our groups at the 9.30 service! This work is as important as anything that we do at Christ Church and relies completely on volunteers. Another area that we are currently most concerned to develop at Christ Church is our provision for those of our children with Special Needs and volunteers prepared to help those children are particularly needed. Our Vicar, Stephen Kuhrt, oversees our children’s and youth work at Christ Church and is the one to contact with if you would like be involved further. All volunteers for this work need to complete DBS (Disclosure and Barring Service) forms.
Using your gifts and talents in other areas of church life: Christ Church can only function because so many of its members give up their time to maintain its grounds and buildings, look after its finance and do the numerous other things needed each week to keep the church running. Our aim is to be a church where the gifts of every single member are recognised and used, enabling everyone who belongs to Christ Church to find their ‘niche’ and contribute to the life of the church.
