Children and Youth workers

We need a helper to work alongside the teachers of our eldest children’s group 8-11-year olds and a teacher for our 5-7-year olds. Please pray into this and if you think it might be something you could do please talk to Eileen. We need you for September!


We need 2 youth workers to help with our youth on a Sunday morning – you will be supporting Dan, Andrew, Liz and Sarah – so you won’t be on your own!! Please talk to Dan if you feel this is something God is calling you to.


Volunteers needed

Over the Summer we like to give our Sunday School Workers some time off - if you would like to host a Sunday morning children's session during August - please get in touch with D on denise@wantagecc.org.uk. This year we will be providing the activities (loosely based on the summer sermon series - so there will be no preparation involved - you just have to turn up!) We need people for August 4th, 11th, 18th & 25th


Also, could all parents please let Eileen and Andy know when you are on holiday or not around – we won’t hold you to this information, but it really helps if we have an idea of numbers during the summer.
