A very large team of volunteers work alongside staff to keep St Andrew's Church running.
Volunteers run our cafe, ring our bells, sing in the choir, work as lay chaplains, steward services, take communion to those in care homes, help to care for our building, arrange flowers and more! There are many ways to participate in the life of our community. For all roles you will need to fill in an application form and provide references. Certain roles will be subject to a DBS check.
For events volunteering contact Ben directly, for other roles please contact the parish office
