Holy Trinity with St Columba, Fareham

Volunteering

Volunteering

We have a variety of opportunities to offer your time and talents towards the activities in our Parish. If you’re looking to enjoy joining a team or maybe taking on a role which you can fulfil in your own time, please take a look at the ideas below, then get in touch.

Flower Arranging

We enjoy weekly floral displays in both our churches. We welcome anyone who would like to create an arrangement – either on a one-off basis or by becoming a ‘regular’ part of our teams. When we are preparing for an annual festival, we gather many volunteers together to have a go at decorating window ledges, entrance or chapel area, whatever you are confident to try.  Please don’t hesitate to contact our lead flower arrangers for more details.

Refreshments

We enjoy refreshments before or after our mid-morning Sunday worship and we have created several different teams of volunteers who gain much pleasure in preparing, serving and clearing up together. In addition, we enjoy producing light or lavish catering for one-off events. These call for a different team of like-minded volunteers, who relish a bit of a challenge and an opportunity to have fun working together to plan and produce all manner of delights!  If you’d like to join one of our teams, please contact:

  • Sarah Bourner (Holy Trinity) on 01329 284306 
  • Margaret Handley (St Columba) on 01329 608817

Gardening/Grass Cutting

Holy Trinity is surrounded by lawn and flower beds to the front with two Memorial Gardens, to the side and behind. Are you ‘green-fingered’ or just enjoy throwing a lawnmower about now and again? Please get in touch with Church Warden Clive Ellam (htwarden2@htscf.org.uk) if you might be able to join the team.

Sidespeople/Servers

Our mid-morning Sunday services involve all sorts of differing roles. Sidespeople (an ancient term derived from people who served on an area committee called Deanery Synod) greet everyone as they arrive for a service, help direct them as we move around the church during a service and then tidy-up at the end and count money that has been collected. The Servers sit near the priest, assisting in the preparations for Holy Communion and other parts of a service as required. We have a group of volunteers who enjoy fulfilling these roles and if you’d like to know more, please contact our Church Wardens:
