Volunteer Opportunities

Volunteering is the backbone of our church community. It not only allows us to run wonderful programs and activities, and roots us in the fabric of our wider community, but it also enriches the lives of our volunteers through the joy of serving others and the friendship and fellowship inherent in working together.
