Volunteering in Fisherwick
There are many people who volunteer in Fisherwick in many roles in the church. Indeed Fisherwick church could not function without volunteers. As a church leadership, we recognise and value the contribution volunteers make to enable the vision and values of the church. Volunteers bring many new skills, knowledge and enthusiasm, adding a refreshing perspective to the work of the church.

As a church we want to develop a volunteering spirit and we want to speak with people of all ages who want to find out more about getting involved.

At this early stage we want to speak with people who are “interested” in finding out more. By showing an “interest” you are not committing yourself to anything.

To volunteer in some way is service. Service to the church and community we are called to be in.

If you would like to find out more about volunteering in any area of church life then please speak initially with our Senior Minister Michael Anderson (michael@fisherwick.net) or our Church Manager, Raymond Robinson (raymond@fisherwick.net).
