Worship at Epiphany depends on the efforts of many parishioners whose support and dedication allow our services to run smoothly. All of our volunteers are leaders who facilitate the church’s prayer and worship. We encourage you to consider being involved in any of the following worship support ministries.
greeter, Host or usher
Help us welcome people as they enter the church, so that both new visitors and returning attendees feel at home. This involves being attentive to those who need assistance, assisting in the seating of our worshippers, and during Holy Communion assisting people moving to and from the altar rail. It also entails helping visitors connect to their Cultural Ambassadors.
If you play an instrument, you can accompany the choir or provide special music
We always need new voices in our choir (see Worship).
Readers of the appointed Scripture passages are always needed.
prayers of the people
Confirmed parishioners lead the congregation in the Prayers of the People in the service.
We always need those with technical expertise so that the audio/visual aspects of our worship service run smoothly.
Help us arrange the flowers for the church services.
serve on the altar guild
The Altar Guild sets the credence table for the celebration of the Holy Communion, and then cleans up after the service.
serve as an acolyte
Assist the clergy throughout our worship service. Training is provided.
help us polish the brass
These volunteers polish all the brass used in worship services - candlesticks, processional cross, etc.
be a chalice bearer
These confirmed parishioners administer the chalice during Holy Communion.
Organise and serve refreshments after our church services in a spirit of hospitality.
join our finance & counting teams
These teams are responsible for counting the offering after our worship services. Team members often discover a great opportunity for fellowship in this “behind the scenes” ministry.
