TAKING PART IN CHURCH SERVICES
We hope to give a warm welcome to everyone who comes through the church doors on a Sunday and we have a team of Welcomers to do this. Welcomers greet people, hand out the news sheet and direct people to the altar for communion. It usually involves a commitment of one Sunday service a month.
The Servers play an important part of any service. There are different types of servers: the Crucifer (lights candles, sets up the Altar, processes in and out with the cross and achieves the collection); Altar Servers (assist the Celebrant, clear the alter and wash vessels); Gospel Servers (lead the procession with candles, light the gospel procession and assist in the chapel). Full training is given. It usually involves a commitment of twice a month.

Elementers play an important part in our main Parish Communion service by presenting the bread and wine at the altar.
10am and 5.30pm Sunday services
Two people per service are needed to read the Old Testament and New Testament readings. This is a lovely way to get involved in our services and only involves a commitment of about once a quarter.
