Volunteering is a great way to make new friends and feel useful.
At Baildon Methodist Church, nearly everything that happens is because of the work of Volunteers. Ways in which you might volunteer at Baildon Methodist Church and Wesleys:
- Wesleys Café runs with over 70 volunteers who each contribute a little time on a regular basis. The Café would always be pleased to hear from you if you could spare a couple of hours. Just pop in and talk to Mary or Lynne, our cooks) to discuss the possibilities.
- Perhaps you are good at organising things and / or supporting group activities.
- Perhaps you have some specific skills you could share, for example:
- Computer or design skills: are needed to help to prepare and run the computer programme for morning worship; or perhaps you could help to keep one of our websites updated?
- Secretarial and note-taking skills: many of our meetings need someone to take the minutes from time to time: could you help with this occasionally?
- Maybe you could start up a new group to introduce local people to something that you are skilled in – e.g. arts, music, crafts, health, flower arranging etc.
- If you have some financial skills, could you help our Treasury Team?
- Enjoy gardening? Talk to Avril Dawes or Ruth Anderson about the Gardening Team.
If you would like to talk to someone about these or other ways to Volunteer at Wesleys, contact one of the Lay Pastors, Mervyn or Peter, at link to Lay Pastors
