Training and support

As part of our volunteer team, it is expected that you will have an enhanced DBS, and undergo our training, to help you feel confident in where you serve. Our staff are also there to help you at any point of your journey.

Puppet Teams

Puppet Teams are a great way to serve our younger children, helping them to see different viewpoints and telling them the truths of the Bible.

Clubs Team

Clubs are a really great way to help children not only hear the Good news, but spaces that help them to ask questions in a less formal environment.
