Request for 11:15 Junior Church leaders and helpers

We are desperate for more people to join the Junior Church Team. Please prayerfully consider joining so that we can be more effective in this wonderful ministry. We have all the resources required to teach. We have five classes that all need help: Crèche; the preschool and reception group called Romans; the age 5-7 group called Ephesians; the age 7-11 group called Galatians and the Philippians group for years 6-8. All it requires for a leader is 30 minutes or so to prepare for the lesson and giving your time during the sermon to serve Junior Church. With more people on the Rota this will be less frequent than it is for the current leaders and helpers and you can decide your availability and how frequently you can help out.You can catch up with the Sermon because it is recorded. If you volunteer as a helper, you would be helping the leader and ensuring we have two adults within the group setting. You will be a blessing to the children and will be blessed. Please come for a taster session if you are not sure. Please speak to any member of the Junior Church Team or Catherine D.
