2. Door Stewards
The Door Steward is the first person you see when you enter the doors of the church. Door Stewards welcomes you with a smile, a kind greeting and makes sure all the Covid-19 regulations are met. Without a door steward, it’s like walking into a dark lonely house.
We need door stewards.

3. Multi-Media Team
The Multi-Media Team is looking for members who would like to help film the 09:30 Service every week. Training will be given. You do not have to panic; we will teach you everything and we will not throw you in the deep end.

4. Small Groups
Starting this week, the Church and surrounding rooms for Small Groups will be open to use. Book your place and time.

5. Ruach Counselling Centre is open and running both face to face and virtual consultations. We are starting a new video series bringing awareness on different issues. We will have a new video twice a month. Please watch on our Facebook page and share with friends.
