One of the best ways to get involved in the church is to join a serving team.

We believe that everyone has a part to play in the church, so that it can be everything God intends it to be. Serving is an opportunity to participate in church life and make a contribution through your gifts, skills and time. 

Jesus of himself said “even the Son of man came not to be served but to serve”. Serving others is a key way we can keep Christ central in our lives honour him as we honour and serve each other.  You can sign up here.

Here are some of the ways you can get involved on a Sunday Morning:

Our Hospitality Teams work hard to make sure you have a nice welcome when you arrive, somewhere to sit, and a coffee to drink while you stay around to chat.

Our Worship Teams work together to enable the church to give glory to God. Beyond just playing instruments, these teams display the song words, control the sound system and lead us in praise.
