Even in a church as bijou and friendly as St Luke’s, it can sometimes be hard to get to know people, especially as a newcomer. One of the best ways to make friends and start to feel part of the community is to get involved with one of the groups serving the church on a Sunday morning. You’ll spend time with your fellow volunteers – a great way to meet and get to know people – and it’ll give you more contact with the rest of the congregation as well. The coffee rota is currently in need of fresh blood, so if you fancy serving people their after-service refreshments once or twice a quarter (they’ll love you for it!), talk to Nina or email her on firstname.lastname@example.org.
If that’s not your thing, you can find your niche in welcoming people to services, leading prayers, doing readings, running the sound desk, helping out with the Sunday school or youth group, or helping with practical tasks around the church. If you're interested in being involved with any of these, or you have other ideas about how you can help, just contact Pat at email@example.com. Many hands make light work, and you’ll soon feel like part of the St Luke’s furniture!
