Get Involved

Church is not just the building, but the people within it. As part of the body of Christ we each have a role to play, serving one another and building up the church. If you would like to get involved with any of the teams below, or just to find out more, please contact one of our church wardens.

SERVING

Flower Arrangers

We have a very small dedicated team of flower arrangers but they would welcome more people to join the team in order to spread the load. We ask that arrangers purchase the flowers but they are refunded by the church.

Maintenance

There is always something that needs to be done and where possible we try to do it ourselves. Please make yourself known if you would be willing to assist in completing odd jobs in the church.

Readers and Intercessors

Read a lesson or lead the community prayers during the service. We are always on the look out for people to help in these ministries.

Welcomers

Become a member of the church welcome team. Welcoming and assisting members and guests at services and events. Hand out books and notice sheets and take collection  during a Communion service. We see this as a vital ministry and we encourage more people to join.

Refreshments

Fellowship is an integral part of  our services. We serve refreshments after each Sunday morning service. Can you help?

CHURCH GROUPS

CAMEO (Come and Meet Each Other)

CAMEO meet for a social coffee and bible study on a Wednesday morning commencing at 1030 during term time. For more information contact Angela Chandler.

Crafty Church

Crafty Church is a group who meet every Monday between 1300 and 1500.  They enjoy knitting, crocheting and cross stitch; they also enjoy a good chat.  The only cost is 20p for tea and biscuits. For further information please contact Brenda Brown.

Ladies Group

Southway Ladies’ Group meets in the church (using the side door rather than the main entrance) on the second Tuesday evening of each month except February.  Our meetings start at 1930 and finish by about 2100.  We are a friendly group of (mostly) retired ladies and we are very informal. We have speakers on various topics and we all have a chat and refreshments before we go home. However, twice a year,  instead of the evening meeting we go out for lunch together, once in July and once in January and we have an occasional Bring and Buy to boost our funds. Annual membership costs £2 and we contribute £1 towards the refreshments (tea/coffee and biscuits) at each meeting. We would be delighted to welcome new members to our group. For further information please contact Sue Whitby.

 OUTREACH
