Help needed for Sunday School

We are currently looking for extra help in our Sunday School groups.

We have a dedicated group of people that that do a great job of looking after our young people.

However we still have gaps in our rota to help with safeguarding our group leaders, helpers and our young people.

We are not looking for leaders unless you feel that this is something you feel called to do. We just need extra people to ensure we have the full quota of helpers.

We have 3 different groups covering Primary age children to Teens so have different opportunities should you feel called to specific ages.

There will be a Sunday school meeting on Wednesday 15th November at 7.30 in the Oasis.

If you are interested in helping with or leading the children’s groups then please come along to find out more or get in touch with Dot.
