The work of the church is made possible by the dedicated work of dozens of volunteers who help to run the Alpha Course, set up coffee for Sunday services, teach our young people in Children’s Church, get involved in homeless outreach and serve on the Welcome Team, to name but a few. We are also looking for volunteers to help with the smooth running of the Parish Centre, by covering reception, organising events or helping out with IT tasks.
Volunteering in a team for a term or year can be the most rewarding way to be involved in St Aldates and make great friends in the process.
If you’re a member of St Aldates and you want to an opportunity to serve, then give Sally Shuckburgh a call on 01865 254 809 or email firstname.lastname@example.org
