young people


‘Don’t let anyone put you down because you’re young’ (1 Tim 4:11). In the Christian life, your age does not define your maturity. Whatever your age, you can set an example by your life. Furthermore, age is no bar to teaching the word of God.

'Don’t let anyone look down on you because you are young, but set an example for the believers in speech, in conduct, in love, in faith and in purity' (1 Tim 4:11)

By God's grace and with your help, this is what we aspire to offer:



LITURGY and MUSIC: To help make our worship, praise and celebration JOYFUL, WHOLEHEARTED and SINCERE we need people to be altar servers, to READ the words of scripture to others, to BRING THE GIFTS to the table of the Lord, to GIVE COMMUNION, to SING and PLAY MUSIC

WELCOMING: we aim to offer friendship to all who come here; we need Welcomers to meet and greet with loving kindness all who enter here


COMFORTING: With the help of volunteers, to offer solace to those who are in sickness, debt, dependency, need, bereaved or lonely or feeling unable to cope. Are you called to do this, perhaps with some support and training?

HELPING, BEING GOOD NEIGHBOURS: giving practical help of every sort to those who need it. (SVP, CAFOD, The Bridge)



OPEN CHURCH: Our beautiful church building is here to help you find the stillness and peace which nourishes a healthy spiritual life. We would like the building to be open and available more often. To do this we need more STEWARDS to keep the place and everyone in it safe.

STUDY: seeking together a deeper understanding of the WORD of God


with CHILDREN, YOUNG PEOPLE, YOUNG ADULTS, COUPLES, FAMILIES, SINGLES, SENIORS of all ages, the UNEMPLOYED, the OVER-BURDENED and OVER-STRESSED. Do you have a calling or a gift to work with a particular section of our community?


To express the joy and wonder of our life in Christ. Are you artistic - musical - a gifted writer? Whether through pictures, sculptures, flowers, words, drama, music, dance - bring your celebration of life into this community of prayer and praise.


We need to maintain our buildings and keep them clean, keep finances and church property in good order... so that everything continues to run smoothly and we can get on with doing the work God calls us to do. Do you have practical gifts to share?

Do you have a calling or a gift to serve others? Or could you become so with some support and training? There is much work for us to do. Give something back in GRATITUDE for the wonder of God's creation and for the mighty harvest He is gathering here and all over the world.
