Every church runs on its volunteers. If you are already a volunteer- THANK YOU! If you are considering a role, then the following guide and links may be useful to you.
Altar servers: Can start from First Holy communion- so let’s get them young! No upper age limit.
Discuss issues affecting the parish and decide what to do about them. Please contact the office if you wish to volunteer.
Music group: plays for Sunday 10:30 Mass, approach the group if interested. If you could play the organ regularly, do please get in touch!
Readers: during Mass, contact the office if interested.
Flower arrangers: Please sign up on the list in the narthex if you would like to take a turn at arranging the church flowers. Flowers in front of the altar and the lectern are required. Flowers can be arranged at home and brought in or arranged at church. A key can be borrowed from the office if the church is locked. Everyone is welcome to have a turn, consider it especially if you haven’t done it before or not for some time.
Lay Ministers of Holy Communion: Take communion to the housebound, and help at Mass- you would normally be approached if it was felt you could fill this role.
Youth Group: be an extra pair of adult hands at one of youth groups. See our youth page for more details.
Churches Together: Plans inter-church activities with other Christian churches in this area. See John Borda/John Conti.
Newmarket Town Pastors: Inter-church group set up to minister to vulnerable people during Newmarket’s vibrant “night-time economy” (pubs, clubs, etc.).
Website editors: If you could edit a page on this website (of a group you belong to), get in touch!
If you are in one of these roles, then part of your job is to make yourself redundant! Please train up people so they can take over from you eventually.
