There are a number of jobs which have become vacant after a number of years work by a number of different people. If you would like to know more about any of these roles please ask Alan or Lesley in the first instance.
We would like to build up an admin team to print the weekly paperwork and posters. It could be shared across weeks or even within a week, and could be done on a Thursday morning while coffee is on. Training in use of the computer and printer will be given.
There are also other admin tasks where help would be great – writing Baptism or Wedding Certificates, updating various spreadsheets – some weekly, some more ad hoc.
Electoral Roll Officer
This role involves keeping a list of those who have signed up to the electoral roll. It is largely an annual job ensuring that the roll is up to date for the APCM in April, although there are occasional applicants during the year. Every six years everybody has to reapply and this happens in 2019. Full training will be given.
The magazine editor is responsible for producing a print ready file to be printed. It is currently produced by Microsoft Publisher, but this is not a requirement as any package which can produce a pdf file will be fine. We produce 10 copies a year, combining July/August and December January. Copy is currently requested by the first Sunday of the previous month and the Editor also uses various national Church resources for other copy. The magazine is very popular – we distribute nearly 500 copies and it helps bring in money for the church. Margaret has been doing this role for many years and is happy to continue for another year, but we would very much like to build up a team to continue this good work and give the team the opportunity to shadow Margaret.
Magazine Advertising Manager
This is mainly an annual task and involves billing the existing magazine advertisers, asking whether they wish to continue, checking that the money has been received, and liaising with the editor to ensure that the correct adverts appear in the magazine. There may be a small amount of work through the year if new advertisers are found. Full training will be given, but there will also be the opportunity to shape the work to suit your skills and time.
We would like to build a team at each Church to keep the noticeboards, both internal and external, up to date. Posters and documents arrive each Sunday in a brown bag and out of date posters need removing and new ones need putting up. In addition the bag contains children’s colouring sheets, monthly news sheets and special orders of service which need putting out. Would you be willing to do this for your church?
WWI 100 years Commemoration Coordinator
We would love to have an event at St George’s Church to commemorate 100 years since the end of WWI. Ideally with an art exhibition and involving the local schools. Is this something you would like to do?
