As sons and daughters of the eternal King Jesus, we need to listen to our Father.  He wants to teach us and equip us for what He’s calling us to do.  Like all children, we’re expected to serve in the Father’s house, to do our chores.  This builds our character and demonstrates that we’re all about our Father’s business.  Serving is an act of faith and Jesus speaks of it plainly.
 
 
 
 
Having then gifts differing according to the grace that is given to us, let us use them: if prophecy, let us prophesy in proportion to our faith; or ministry, let us use it in our ministering; he who teaches, in teaching; he who exhorts, in exhortation; he who gives, with liberality; he who leads, with diligence; he who shows mercy, with cheerfulness [Romans 12:6-8 NKJV].
 
 
 
 
We are all a part of the body of Christ and just as our physical body has many different parts performing different functions so it is within the church (the body of Christ).  We’re all called to serve Him with what He has given us.  Like the Lord we don’t seek perfection, we seek the servant’s heart.  Below is a list of some of the many opportunities to serve in our church.  Remember that the one who stocks the toilet is no less than a preacher, it’s simply a different role.   We’re all in the people business and every serving opportunity provides a way to serve the Lord and His people.  Please contact us with any questions or to register your interest in any of the following. We’d love to set you up in ministry today. 
 
 
Administration
 
We need administrators to get things organised and done.  This is a large area of opportunity that includes: Website updates, Church Communications, Graphic Design, Social Media, Newsletters, Emails, Brochure Preparation, Merchandising, Event planning and Rostering planning.  
 
Prayer Warriors
 
We all need to pray but for some this is a calling, a passion.  We encourage the formation of prayer groups and those who love to intercede for others.  You may like to be a prayer coordinator where prayer requests are shared appropriately and prayed for. 
 
Set up and pack up
 
There are chairs and tables to be moved, banners and signage to set up, resources to place and kitchen to prepare for each and every Sunday service.  We need to be ready for church in the morning and then we need to pack up when we’re finished.  The more helpers we have, the quicker the process and the less often people will need to be rostered. 
 
Domestic Stuff
 
Yes, toilets need to be checked and cleaned, we need the bathrooms stocked. Floors need to be swept and carpet vacuumed.  Dishes need to be washed and rubbish bins emptied.
 
Pastoral Care
 
Everyone needs to be loved and that is a commandment from the Lord.  We need teams of people and leaders to oversee the care of our flock.  Pastoral Care ranges from simple phone calls, visits, delivery of food hampers or other needs to just a listening ear. 
 
Welcome team
 
Do you have a friendly smile and great with new people? If so, we need you.  First impressions count and we need to ensure people know they are most welcome.  You’ll need to answer their questions and show them around.
 
Kitchen Service
 
Most of us love a cuppa after the service and maybe even a light snack.  For this to happen, we need people willing to serve in Hope Cafe.  We need to get everything ready and prepare the food for consumption. 
 
Greetings of Peace
 
Each service we encourage the congregation to spend a moment or two greeting each other.  We encourage volunteers to host this by sharing a short scripture that supports this important act of love. 
 
Tithes and Offerings
 
Another very important part of our faith and part of each Sunday service.  Would you consider briefly sharing some scripture and/or a testimony about how the Lord provides when we trust Him with our finances. 
 
Creative Media Team
 
Still in its infancy this will be a growing ministry for the church.  This includes arranging the recording of the sermons, editing them for uploading to Youtube and our website.  Video announcements and video production, preparation of flyers and more. 
 
Worship Team
 
Are you musically gifted?  This team includes musicians, singers, sound engineering and the visual displays during the service.  All these things need to be prepared before each Sunday service.  This team needs to meet regularly for practice and has its own set up and pack up requirements.
 
Discipleship Team
 
We all need to be discipled, it’s a part of our journey with the Lord.  This team focuses on the needs of new Christians.  We need to teach them the foundations of Christianity so they can be set upon the solid rock of Christ.  This will involve spending time with new believers one on one and/or in small group settings hosting a discipleship course. 
 
Lazarus the Bus
 
Our church bus is a wonderful blessing.  He needs drivers, he needs to be washed and cleaned.  A standard car licence is all that is needed.

LifeGroup Leaders
 
Small groups are vitally important.  They allow members to get to know each other, pray for each other, ask questions and engage in deeper learning and sharing.  We love to train up new leaders.  
 
Preaching & Teaching
 
If you believe you’re called to delivering a sermon, we want to hear from you.  Contact us for more information on the next steps into this ministry.
