The Welcome Team is, as the name suggests, a team of church attenders who meet and greet arrivals at the services in the Parish. These welcomers are usually the first people who those attending church see and a warm welcome is always appreciated. Being part of the team also entails making sure the orders of service are ready for distribution, counting the number of attendees, taking the offering and ushering the congregation to take Holy Communion at the appropriate time. Visitors are advised regarding Little Beacons if attending with children.
The goodbye as worshippers leave the service is also an important part.
We have a monthly rota for the team so the commitment is not at all onorous and in fact a very good way of seeing so many people!
If you would like to be part of the team please contact Maralyn Hine at firstname.lastname@example.org.
