Our Welcome Team- a service opportunity!

We need new members for our Welcome Team at the 10.30 service on Sundays- are you able to help us with this important job- welcoming people to our services? Could you join  the rota to help once a month? Contact Sue Boon. 

St, Margaret’s also needs help to run our worship services, and children’s ministry as well as our Community activities (the Jam Ministries). Look at the insert and see if God might be calling you to an opportunity to serve him here!

Serving together in God’s family is something to which he calls all Christians according to their gifts and talents. In serving Christ:

  • Our faith is strengthened through depending on him
  • Our fellowship grows as we get to know and love our brothers and sisters in the Church family
  • Our Father God is given glory through our service-

 ‘ let your light shine before others, that they may see your good works and give glory to your Father in heaven’  (Matthew 5:16)

We have several opportunities for you to serve in the family of St. Margaret’s- check out these and see if God wants you to help!
