Everyone at St Helen's is encouraged to be a partner in the ministry, as we seek to know Jesus and make him known. Church life is a team effort. We are one body in Christ with many different gifts just as the body has many different parts. Each part performs a different role yet working with the same goal in mind. Everyone is encouraged to use their gifts and resources to serve God and his people.
On Sundays and mid-week we always need people to help welcome and steward, run the PA system and serve refreshments before, during and after the meeting. There is always an opportunity to join a team and get involved. There are also opportunities to serve young people in Sunday school, crèche and the youth group. Other people are involved with ministry in prisons and in the local area.
Summer camps are a great way to share the good news of Jesus with young people. Many people in the church family join teams of people from other churches serving on different summer camps in the UK and abroad. There are many ways to serve and all are useful; including teaching the Bible in small groups, running activities, cooking food or helping out in different practical ways.
Our ministry is dependent on the giving of the church family and friends. Through the generosity of the church family, we are able to open the doors wide and invite everyone to listen to Jesus, perhaps for the first time.
St Helen's is here for you at all stages of your life. We are delighted to be involved with life events like baptisms and weddings.
As a church we recognise that God is in control and we are completely dependent on him. Prayer is a vital part of everything we do as we seek to know Jesus and make him known.
