Serve

Serving Teams

We have a big mission and there is much to be done. We would love you to get involved and use the skills, abilities and gifts that you have to help us in our mission.  There are so many ways of getting involved, but it depends on your availability and areas of interest.  A heart to serve and to learn, and our availability, is really all that God wants from any of us.

Sunday Teams

Welcome

Greeting people and helping them to integrate into the church

Helping make people feel welcome and at home, this team is often the first impression guests have of Life Church.  Your role is not just to greet people, but importantly to help people integrate into the life of the church.  Answering questions and pointing people to the right people.  You will be a people person.  Would you be willing to serve 2 weeks per month.


Hospitality Team

Providing nice refreshments at church services and events

Providing refreshments for around 150 people every Sunday is a very busy job during our services.  But the impact on our ability to make people feel welcome and relaxed is invaluable.  The team sets the tables up (downstairs and in the gallery) and keeps them replenished before and after the service for a period to encourage people to stay.  Then clearing away and tidying.  Would you be willing to be part of a team/rota serving every 2-3 weeks?


PA desk

Running the audio-visual aspects to make services a great experience

Providing seamless technical support for our main services and occasional events.  Running the mixer desk and live sound system, or managing the video and words projection.  You will love to see the best use made of technology.  Perhaps you have video/edit skills which could enhance the team too?  Join the team for a monthly commitment.


Worship

Singing or playing with a worshipful heart to help others to worship

A heart of worship is the foundational element in this very public area.  As such we look for people to join practices to get to know the team before joining the Sunday team.  Do you play a particular instrument or sing?  Join the team for practices.


LifeKids infants

The 3-7 age group class consists of fun and practical activities, bible stories and play, all helping in the spiritual development of these children.  Would you be willing to be part of that team on a regular rota, and sometimes standing in for absences?  All childrens’ workers are interviewed and undergo a DBS check.


LifeKids juniors

The 8-11 age group class consists of fund and engaging bible study, games, and discussions.    The goal is to see rounded young people with the character and faith shaped by Biblical values.  All childrens’ workers are interviewed and undergo a DBS check.

Weekday Teams

Cafe team

Helping providing refreshments and friendship

The cafe which runs 10-12 on weekday mornings meets the needs of a large number of people, many of whom don’t come to our church services.  The cafe is a safe place, a place of friendship and support.  Could you give one morning a week to make coffee and to get to know people, some with challenging needs?


Outreach team

Giving out tracts/leaflets


Community Clean-up

Helping tidy and improve our neighbourhood


Housekeeping Team

Helping keep the church clean and welcoming

The church is cleaned every week by volunteers to make it ‘guest ready’ for Sunday. Would you be able to commit to a couple of hours to clean the church space and other rooms (including the toilets).  Join the team/rota and commit to one week per month.


Count team

Counting and banking the Sunday offerings (this team is open to those who have been in Life Church for over 6 months)


Administration

Supporting in areas such as finance, diary, publicity, web, database etc

Want to help out?

For each of these areas we are looking for people who have a heart to serve, who are reliable and committed, and who see serving in these practical ways as serving God.  The pay is terrible (there isn’t any), each position is demanding in it’s own way, but most importantly it is working for the Kingdom of God and that is immensely satisfying and rewarding.
