Help Needed! Please can you spare a few hours a month to help?

  • Coffee in the Chancel – This thriving community cafe can only run with the help of volunteers. We are open 9 -11 Mon-Wed and Sat. This is an interesting and rewarding way to meet more people and serve the church and village. Full training given.
  • Cleaners – Our beautiful building needs hoovering and dusting once a week on a Friday morning. This only takes a couple of hours and volunteers work in teams, giving their time once a month. Free coffee and all equipment provided!
