CHURCH ROSTERS. As will be appreciated, we heavily rely on volunteers to provide the variety of services and ongoing functions at the Church. As we are now in into the winter period, individuals are more susceptible to colds etc., and of course we still have COVID present in the community. This can result in individuals not always able to meet roster requirements and therefore result in last minute revisions to the impacted rosters. Recently the requirements to perform the duties for some rosters have been simplified in order to make tasks safer and easier to perform.
Rosters that currently operate within the Church are:
• Service Leader
• Communion Leader
• Bible Reader
• Music (Piano or organ playing)
• Door Greeting
• Car Park duties
We are also looking for people to train for our sound and digital media systems.
If you would like to participate in any of the above rosters, please contact one of the Diaconate members. (Ron, Adrian, Jeanette, Glennis or David). Thank you for your consideration.
Coming soon. Watch this space
Our neighbours on the east side of the Church property (red brick house on the hills side) have requested that we do not park in front of their property. In order to try and comply with this request, would you please limit the number of vehicles parking on the verge in front of the Church on the east side of the Church drive-in entry to just two. The remaining two or three vehicle spaces will be reserved for visitors who will not necessarily be aware of this requirement. This means that if there are already two vehicles parked in this area when you arrive, you are respectfully requested to park elsewhere. Alternative parking is available in the Church car park or on the western side of the Church entry in Puddy Lane. Thank you for your cooperation.
