Serve on a Team

If you have decided that Sutton Vineyard is the church for you, one of the key ways of getting involved is by joining one of our teams.

Joining a team is a great way of getting involved in the life of the church. It is one of the best ways of connecting with others and feeling part of the church community

Sundays are a small but very important part of what we do to make Sundays happen, we need everyone to get involved and to help out.

We believe that by serving others we serve Jesus and His purposes and also practically demonstrate our love for others.

Find out more about areas of serving on this page and see which team you’d like to try. To get involved or for more information, email serving@suttonvineyard.org

Sunday Service

Set up/ Set down

Have you ever wondered how a school building becomes a church? From unpacking the shed to setting out chairs, if you like transforming spaces or generally lending a hand, this is the team for you.

PA/AV

The PA and AV teams work together to ensure that the band, readers and speakers can be heard and that lyrics, Bible readings and videos can be seen on the big screen.

Full training is provided and we would love you to join us, whether you have years of experience or none at all.

Lectern Readers

Bible readings are a key element of our Sunday services. If you enjoy public speaking, this could be the role for you.

Worship

If you’re committed to forming your life around following and worshipping Jesus, and happen to be a talented guitarist, bassist, drummer, play the keys or sing, then our worship teams could be a place for you.

Prayer

None of this is possible without the power of people praying. Every Sunday morning before the service we gather to pray and all are welcome.

Welcome and hospitality

Welcome

Our welcome team works hard to ensure that everyone who walks through the door is helped to feel at home and connected here. They offer everyone a friendly smile and hello, and provide information, introductions and directions to new people.

If you love interacting with people of all ages and backgrounds, then you’ll make a great addition to this team.

Car Parking

Our car parking team are the first point of contact visitors have with Sutton Vineyard and do a wonderful job of making people feel welcome before they have even stepped through the door.

If you’re tough enough to brave the elements all year round then this is the team for you.

Hospitality

This is one of our most important Sunday morning teams - they provide tea, coffee, squash and doughnuts!

From making refreshments for the early morning teams to serving teas and coffees or washing up at the end, there is a role for you to play.

Kids and youth

Kids

From babies to school year six we seek to help our children grow in their relationship with God in fun and relevant ways.

We run five different age groups on a Sunday morning and have a kids worship team. So, if you want to help children meet and know God, there is plenty of opportunity for you to get involved

Youth

We have a thriving youth group with children in school years 7 to 13.

Whether it be on a Sunday morning alongside the main services, or on a Friday or Sunday evening, if you want to see young people grow in a faith that sticks, this is the place for you.

Community

The Wendy House

Each week on a Monday and Tuesday morning we serve the families in our community through our high quality baby and toddler group. From unpacking toys from the shed, to meeting and greeting, there are plenty of jobs to be done throughout the morning.

Healing On The Streets 

Our HOTS team go out on a Saturday, once a fortnight, to meet and pray for people in Sutton town centre. Full training is provided for this amazing opportunity to bring the power of God into our community.

Sanctuary

We run termly pamper sessions for women affected by domestic abuse. If you have pampering or hospitality skills and are available during the day then we would love you to join our team.

Courses

We run a range of courses throughout the year. From expert knowledge to loading the dishwasher, find out more about the courses that we run in our ‘CONNECT’ booklet, and see if there is an area you would like to get involved in.

Stayton House

Maintenance

Our church centre hosts many groups and events as well as the church office. If you are handy with DIY or have specific maintenance skills, there are often jobs that need doing to ensure the smooth running of Stayton House.

Gardening

We also have a small garden area which requires regular upkeep. If you are able to spare a couple of hours here and there we would love to hear from you.

Administration

So much goes on behind the scenes at Sutton Vineyard and there are always administration tasks to be done, to benefit the church body and our community. If you have time on your hands during the week we would love to utilise your administrative skills.
