Volunteers' Week

Home » News » Volunteers' Week

Volunteers Week is celebrated between 1st and 7th June every year. It is a week in which the UK celebrates volunteers and says thank you to them for the contribution that they make. The week also raises awareness about the benefits becoming a volunteer and the diverse volunteering roles that are available.
As well as helping others, Volunteering has been shown to have a positive impact on the lives of those who volunteer, assisting volunteers in gaining new skills and boosting self-esteem.

We are one of the many organisations highly dependent on volunteers in a wide range of roles. If you would like to explore volunteering, we have options ranging from 2-4 hours a year (church cleaning) to monthly, weekly and irregular commitments to fit round you, your availability, other commitments, skills and interests. In the first instance, contact our minister Richard Atkinson by phone — 01296 339899 or email: revrja@outlook.com for an informal chat.
