Interested in joining a team?
There is always need for more people to get stuck in to help us grow and thrive. Before we begin we have a couple of things to get right.
1. STARTING WELL...
We are doing this together! all roles contribute to the vision and aims of the church. you are not serving self or doing it for a friend or because you have to... but we want you to do it because you see your part to play in the mission of the church.
In order to be involved in ministries in the church we hope that you will spend time first getting to know us regular attending and being part of the life of the church. Getting time to know you but also us and the vision and mission before putting your hands to the mast.
2. CHARACTER, CHEMISTRY, COMPETENCE
The 3 C's of team. We care about people more than roles. so we will look at every volunteer and ask... What is their character? are they strong or do they need some dicipling and mentoring before they join a team. Chemistry? will they gel well with others? will they work well or do we think they may be better somewhere else. Competence? we dont want to throw people in positions just because they need filling but finding the persons gifts, skills and passions and making sure the fit is right.
The order is most important. We care most about Character. do you have a heart to serve? will you grab a chair before reaching for a mic?
3. FINDING YOUR FIT
Finally as we talked in the 3C's about finding your fit some roles are easy to get stuck into. Turning up and being an extra hand or stacking chairs/ refreshments and welcome team are simple and quick things to get to know people. But looking after children or vunerable adults or exercising Spiritual authority through worship/ prayer or bible study we are very careful in areas of physical and spiritual authority. This will take some training, discipleship or assessment (ex. DBS checks).
4. BEACON CENTRE
Our sister charity the Beacon Trust is also regularly interested in volunteers and whether you have faith or not they would love to hear from you by emailing: firstname.lastname@example.org
