Interested in helping on Sundays?
There are many opportunties to be involved in Sunday Services! Each of these roles has a roster of volunteers who take it in turns to contribute based on their availability. If you are interested in one of the following ministries, please contact the Reverend Gary van der Meer for more information.
The members of the Altar Guild assist in the physical set-up of the church for worship. They set out the weekly communion supplies (wine, bread, chalices, linens), change the hangings on the altar through the church seasons, arrange for linens to be cleaned, and polish the brass and silver. There is also a team of people who organize flowers for the weekly services.
Members of the Servers Guild assist the clergy at worship. They perform various roles, such as bearing the cross and candles in processions, assisting in the preparation of the altar for Eucharist, to setting up and tidying the church for major events. No prior knowledge is required and training will be provided. Parishioners wishing to contribute in a Server role should contact the Reverend Gary van der Meer for more information.
At each service, scripture is read by parishioners, from all ages groups. The primary requirements are a good reading voice and a love of sharing scripture with fellow worshippers.
Offering prayers for the church, our community, and the world is an integral part of worship. Resources and specific training in the composition and delivery of the intercessions is provided.
Each Sunday at the 10.15 am service, two people are rostered to be available after worship to welcome newcomers, connect them with parishioners and the clergy, and answer questions.
Sidespeople greet visitors, hand out bulletins, ensure people are seated, take up the offering, and assist with the flow of people to communion.
Coffee, tea, juice and snacks are provided on Sunday mornings throughout the year. If you enjoy providing hospitality, this is the role for you!
