Join a Team
Serving the church is something that everyone is able to play a part in! As a community, it is so important that each of us uses a little bit of our time to serve God and to serve each other. Here at Rising Brook, there is sure to be a team you can join suited to your gifting and personality. If you’re able to give some of your time to serving on a team, even if it is just one Sunday a month, please fill in the form at the bottom of the page.
Children are at the heart of the mission of our church. We don’t just want to see adults who know and live for Jesus, but families going on the journey together. Our Children’s Ministry includes a number of different groups ranging from weekly kid’s clubs, to children’s church events, to serving at conferences around the UK. The best children’s workers aren’t necessarily people with loads of experience working with little people, but with a passion to see kids live their lives out in amazing ways. There are no required skills or qualities, but there is a comprehensive recruitment process that we follow to ensure all the children we work with are safe. Come and see the lives of young people transformed, and have a load of fun doing it!
Sunday Hospitality Team
Become a regular volunteer by serving on our Sunday Hospitality Team at either of our Sunday morning service locations. The purpose of our Sunday Hospitality Team is to make our guests feel welcome and loved as they come into church, often for the first time. Hospitality Team volunteers do one or more of the following roles – Set up, Welcome, Coffee bar, Reception, Communion and Pack down. We’re a vibrant team with a range of ages and skills, all dedicated to improving the experience of our Sunday guests. Volunteers are asked to commit one Sunday a month to serving on Sunday Hospitality Team.
Special Events Hospitality Team
Our Special Events Hospitality Team is perfect for those who love to serve but can’t commit to a regular volunteering role. Throughout the year Rising Brook Church hosts a number of large events which often attract hundreds of people. These events need bigger Hospitality Teams to ensure our events are safe, well managed and enjoyable to our guests. They are also a great opportunity for volunteers to have access to events without paying the ticket price. Roles include – Set up, Stewarding, Welcoming, Preparation and Serving of food and drink, Pack down and anything else that needs doing. Volunteers can pick and choose which events they volunteer for.
Our church centre is open Monday – Friday 8:30am – 3:30pm to offer everyone a warm and friendly welcome. We have a cafe, events and regular groups and our volunteers are vital in the smooth running of our activities for our community. We are always looking for volunteers to join our friend teams, from receptionists welcoming guesting, hosting reception & giving out food parcels to serving food and drinks in the cafe. Please get in touch to find out more.
As our church grows, our processes and systems expand and change. We have a significant technical infrastructure that helps the operation or our church run smoothly and flexibly – and it’s almost entirely thanks to a skilled team of volunteers. Whether you’ve got basic computer admin skills or professional IT knowledge, we’re always on the lookout for people who can help ensure our systems function correctly and that we’re ready for whatever the future has to throw at us.
Clear and engaging content is one of the best ways we’ve found to encourage and grow our church community. Team Media Team brings together videographers, photographers, designers and artists to tell stories in creative ways, as well as bringing clarity to the communication that’s most important. Through the range of experience in our team, we’re able to provide extensive technical training in all areas of media and together have produced everything from long-form documentary films, to children’s animations. We have a proven youth development track that has helped young people develop media skills and go on to train professionally.
