Call for volunteers
We at the Well are on the look-out for new volunteers to join our children’s and youth ministry to help once a month. We need people “of good reputation, full of the Spirit and of wisdom, whom we may put in charge of this task”. I’m sure we don’t have to look far! You’ll find some descriptions of what’s needed below. Please bring these needs in prayer to God. If the Spirit is prompting you to volunteer some of your time in serving this ministry, please get in touch with Jonathan on firstname.lastname@example.org or email@example.com.
We offer training for all volunteers, which happens at points throughout the year. Don’t worry if you are not confident in your own abilities to prepare a session. We always work in pairs, so you’ll be with a more experienced volunteer who will organise session plans and materials for the first sessions you take. You can volunteer as much or as little as you like, in a way that suits you. In reality, we need leaders, up and coming leaders, and people who just want to help from time to time. Working with children and youth is an enormous blessing and a joy as well as a challenge – it keeps you sharp in your faith as you disciple and enable those who are younger in their relationship with God!
We are looking for volunteers (particularly men) who are happy to go out with the children aged 3-7 one Sunday a month. Sessions typically include crafts, songs, games and stories.
We are looking for volunteers (particularly men) who are happy to go upstairs with the children aged 7-11 one Sunday a month. Sessions typically include crafts, songs, games and stories, but the children are of an age where more verbal and written activities can also be used.
The youth team needs one more volunteer (preferably a woman) who can go upstairs with the youth (aged 11-15 or so) one Sunday a month. We also need help running two fortnightly mid-week groups to be launched in January. These will be spaces for discipling and mentored our teenagers, one for older (15-18) and one for younger (11-14) youth. Beyond this, if you have a particular passion or skill you want to share with the youth on a one-off occasion, please let Jonathan know. Likewise, if you can volunteer to join us at Soul Survivor in August 2018, please get in touch.
