Volunteering/Working at Christ Church.
The 3 C's of Christ Church Cottingham are:
We believe we can best serve others in and through relationship. We have forms you can fill out for volunteering/one time event teams/fundraising events & proposals/seasonal or long term ministry proposals.
Because we value accountability and training in all areas of our church this process will be required to be completed, and if its an idea or proposal, completed and handed to one of our leadership team to be looked over at a leadership team meeting. Usually a volunteer form is collected by the ministry team leader.
For some new ideas, fundraising events or new ministry proposals, you may be invited along to a leadership meeting to talk about the proposal and once a decision has been made, announced and celebrated and given room/resource to minister as part of Christ Church. You can download one of the forms by clicking HERE, or pick one up from the church foyer or office.
For worship team ministry we have a guide book for you to read and apply through to be part of this area of church life. Like you, we take worship seriously and therefore have high standards you would expect to see in any public area of church life. You can download one of these worship team booklets by clicking HERE, or pick one up from the church foyer or office.
Membership & volunteering. We value membership and believe in all member ministry. We have a simple volunteer form you need to fill out for any area of serving and although you need not become a member for every opportunity to serve, there are some areas that require you to be a member or at least be on the membership journey with Christ Church as some areas require our child protection policy or vulnerable persons policy and process and /or our finance handling policy. We call this "measuring discipleship and growth". This is simple and helps you understand where you are on your own discipleship journey. You can download one of these volunteer forms by clicking HERE, or pick one up from the church foyer or office.
