SummaryStewards for St Mary's Church Bridgwater. We are a very outward-thinking church and with our new cafe we want to become a safe, friendly hub within Bridgwater.
We are looking for stewards to welcome visitors of the church. People visit the church for either private prayer, or for historical interest, or for the cafe, or even for meetings and events.
We are aiming to build up a team of stewards who can come in for 2 - 4 hours at a time and can be the face of St Mary's Church. We are hoping that stewards would be happy to serve coffee and cake whilst on duty. This would increase income for the church and also make the day more interesting as it may attract more visitors. If you don’t want to serve coffees then that is not a problem at all.
This role would suit you if you like meeting people or have an interest in historical buildings. St Mary's Church is a stunning Grade 1 listed building and is a bellringing training centre for the southwest.
We have a wonderful cafe area which was made possible with a Government Covid Recovery Grant of £20,900.
This project is funded by the Culture Recovery Fund for Heritage. The Culture Recovery Fund is being delivered by The National Lottery Heritage Fund and Historic England, using funds provided by the Department for Digital, Culture, Media and Sport.
With this new cafe area we are looking forward to welcoming back our dementia group, young mums and tots, and lots of other groups. So we anticipate this role being very interesting and rewarding.
St Mary's Church is a wonderful, welcoming and safe place to work.
