On behalf of the Leadership Team, I am happy to announce that the first of our volunteers have taken up their roles. We have spent the last three weeks chatting to volunteers and trying to find the right way to use the talents they have. We still have some people to meet with for the first time, or to have follow-up meetings with. This is sure to result in more volunteers joining our teams. However, we don’t want to hold up everyone while we complete the process. All those joining teams are doing so on a three month trial so that they can see if the team they join suits them.
The blog will be updated in the coming weeks to reflect the changes in the teams.
Three new members have joined the Leadership Team. Jude (JudeAaronZane) and Fionn Bookmite are joining us for the first time. Patapon Monday has been on the team before and now we are happy to be able to welcome her back. We look forward to the contribution these new members can bring to us. Fionn will be our Communications Officer, a new role which will cover many of the communications tasks I currently undertake. We will be working with Fionn to define the extent of the role in the next few weeks.
Heatherly Addens has joined the Prayer Team. Heatherly was previously on the Leadership Team. We’re glad that she has found a role she can do within the time she has available. We are currently looking at joining the Prayer and Pastoral Teams into one. There will be further news soon. Remember, if you want someone to pray with you, you can page them from the board inside the cathedral on the left.
We have several volunteers who would like to help build the Welcoming Team once more. Lynx Tree (peacelynxtree) is going to help our Church Warden, Ana Stubbs, to co-ordinate the Welcoming Team. Other members will be joining the team next week and hopefully you will see welcomers on the sim at times when you visit. They will be there to answer questions and show visitors around the sim if needed.
