Join a team

Teams are involved in all of our church’s ministries, including welcoming newcomers at a Sunday service, serving those who are homeless, music and liturgy, making clothes for preterm babies, and helping children to learn and worship.

 

Teams are a great way to serve God, to put others before ourselves, and to make and deepen friendships. Why not join a team this Sunday? 

 

Music. If you’re a singer or musician, we would love to hear from you. There are several different ways to be involved in our Choir for our formal service, or to get involved with our Worship Band playing worship songs.

Welcome. First impressions last! Why not join a team offering a friendly welcome to our congregations and to newcomers at our Sunday services? Or you could become a bellringer, calling others to worship – training available!

Catering. Our catering teams prepares and serves refreshments on Sundays, or at some other one-off occasions, or at Messy Church. This is an important and valued aspect of offering hospitality. No cooking ability is required.

Arklight Homeless Shelter. Each winter, we work in collaboration with the Wirral Ark and a number of other churches to provide a warm welcome, food and overnight shelter to our neighbours who are without a home.

Ministering to children. We offer high quality, bespoke Sunday worship for children from birth up to the end of primary school. We have a youth group, and weekday children’s activities too. Safeguarding is key to these ministries. Let us know if you’d like to get involved!

Caring for our church. Each week, teams of volunteers work to keep our Parish Church a clean, bright, safe, welcoming and beautiful place – most often decorated with flowers. We’d love to hear from you if you’d like to get involved.

There are varieties of gifts, but the same Spirit; and there are varieties of services, but the same Lord; and there are varieties of activities, but it is the same God who activates all of them in everyone.

I Corinthians 12:4

Giving. Each week, it costs around £3,000 to keep our church open and able to serve our community. We raise all of this money ourselves. If you value our church’s life, we invite you get involved in giving directly or raising money.

Ordained or licensed ministries. God is calling people to give themselves to serve Him and His church as a Priest or Deacon, as a Children’s Worker or Youth Worker, or as a Reader or Pastoral Worker holding the Bishop’s Licence. Is God calling you?

Mothers’ Union. The MU is a global Christian organization, active in 84 countries and supporting around a million people each year. Our parish’s branch is a great place to serve others and to make and deepen friendships.

Supporting charities. Every two months, we raise money for a different charity. In addition, we support our local foodbank all year round. Want to get involved? We’d love to hear from you?

Helping the church to worship. Worship is the most important thing we do in our parish family’s life. Why not become a sidesperson, a choir member, a server, or join the rotas for leading intercessions or reading from the Bible?

Parochial Church Council. Our PCC has a governance role in our parish’s life. Elections are held annually. If you’d like to stand for election, or to inquire about serving on a sub-committee, we’d love you to be in touch.

Craft Café – where both experts and enthusiastic novices enjoy a wide range of crafts with company and a cuppa. Bring your own projects, or get involved our projects: from special baby care units to the mission for seafarers.

God calls all of us to serve him and to serve others. How is God calling you at this point in your life?

To find out more or to volunteer, please contact the Parish Office in the first instance, or speak to a member of our Parish Leadership Team. We can provide more information about options and put you in touch with the team you would like to join.
