Can you serve this Christmas?
‘For even the Son of Man did not come to be served, but to serve, and to give his life as a ransom for many.’
Mark 10:45 (NIVUK)
Christmas at All Souls is our busiest time of year, where we see thousands of visitors attend a Carol Service and hear the Good News of Jesus Christ. It will be the first time in over two years that we hope will not be interrupted by Covid restrictions affecting the numbers of people able to attend.
It is also the easiest time of year to invite friends, family and those from other cultures into All Souls to celebrate the gift of good news and discover the hope found in Jesus.
As part of this church family, we need you to help wherever you can in preparing, hosting and welcoming visitors into our home.
Read through the descriptions below and sign up before midnight on Sunday 27 November. You will be contacted by 1 December to confirm which serving areas you've been allocated.
If you have any questions, please contact firstname.lastname@example.org.
We are looking for a team of people to work with our Church Assistants to clean up after each service collecting rubbish, vacuuming, replacing bin liners, etc. to ready the building for the next carol service. With comfortable shoes and a can-do attitude, the time will fly by!
We need a team of proactive, friendly people to prepare mince pies and Christmas punch during the service and serve them to guests after the service.
Please note: You won’t be able to sit in the service in this role, and may need to go up and down stairs.
We are looking for teams of strong people to erect trees, string fairy lights and put up other exciting displays - and teams to take them down again. Please commit to the whole day; lunch will be provided.
A great opportunity for parents and children to serve together! We have thousands of beautiful Christmas invitations and need a large team willing to invite anyone and everyone to the carol services at Oxford Circus. Dress warmly to stay comfortable while standing outside.
We need lots of enthusiastic singers to draw in people for the flyering team to invite to carol services. Dress warmly to stay comfortable while standing outside.
There will be an optional rehearsal at 7pm on Thursday 8 December, held at All Souls.
All Souls Music produces two sell-out Christmas concerts every year. We need various roles to be filled by serving partners from stage crew to stewarding, and everything in-between! If you are interested please indicate below and we will be in touch with more details about the roles available.
Everyone is invited to provide a box or two of mince pies to serve our guests this Christmas! Please ensure they will still be in date by the end of December 2022.
There's lots happening at All Souls this Christmas. Why not invite your friends and family to a carol service or concert this December.
