At the heart of our practical life is the desire to deepen our effectiveness in using God-given gifts to build up other people. This area involves giving of ourselves for others and is expressed in both:
• Finance – helping manage the Church’s money
• Resources – helping manage fabric, equipment and buildings
In Finance, we express our commitment to Christ and our community is supplying our part of the money it needs to enable the work to grow. This is supported by teams who manage gift aid, budgets, grants and in legal charity advice.
In Resources, we seek to be good stewards of our buildings, equipment and those things that support the wider ministry of the church, such as the bookstall, audio-recording, flowers, cleaning and catering.
The Upper Room Cafe is another area where volunteers are always required.
