For those wondering how to spend a Saturday afternoon, on a Bank Holiday Weekend….
Imagine St Helen’s Church full of tables, laden with vintage crockery and  a mouth-watering array of plumptious scones, delicate sandwiches and delicious cakes.
What could be more appealing?

Vacancy at St Helen’s & St Peter’s Church, Wheathampstead
for a volunteer to join our Finance Team

You do not need to be an accountant, but you should be numerically confident with the honesty and enthusiasm to oversee the income and expenditure moving through the Church’s funds (approx. £175k per annum). Ideally you will join our small Finance team with a view to taking on the role of Treasurer over the course of the next year in order that our current Treasurer can step back in 2024.

The Treasurer is an essential part of the Leadership team and is fully supported by the Rector, Churchwardens, and other members of the Finance team. It is a hugely rewarding position, vital in enabling us to continue to spread God’s love in Wheathampstead and beyond.

Ideally you will join the Parochial Church Council (PCC) which meets 10 times a year.  In keeping with our commitment to safeguarding, you will need to undertake an enhanced DBS check.

If you are interested, please email Helen Caldwell on for more information or to arrange a telephone call to discuss further.

Volunteers needed to join the locking up rota for Thursday and/or Saturday.
Full training provided! Contact Helen Caldwell on 07974 762997.

The Diocesan Schools Team are currently looking for a part time administrator to enhance the Board of Education’s support to all our schools
