Volunteers for St Mary's Church Bridgwater to help us keep the church open as a warm space and offer conversation and friendship to those who come in.

Detailed description

Ours is a vibrant and happy church and we are looking for volunteers to welcome people in and/or help with any of the projects we are running.

You can offer as many or as little hours/weeks as you wish.

We are aiming to build up a team of volunteers who can come in for 2 - 4 hours at a time and can be the face of St Mary's Church.

This will be a very interesting and hugely rewarding role and 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.

We run a Grubs Up session within our church where we provide a good meal once a week on a Thursday after school. This session is for families of school-aged children. 

We run a Toddler Group on a Tuesday morning.

Cafe is open Thursday's and are now wishing to open on Wednesdays and Mondays. If you would like to help with the cafe, we would love to hear from you - we offer full training.

St Mary's Church is a wonderful, welcoming and a safe place to work. You will be working with a friendly team.
