Requests for help

Summer activities for children
Helpers for two summer activities would be greatly appreciated:

1. Champions Holiday Club at UCD on August 8, 9, and 10 (either for all three days, or just one or two of the days).
2. Story Tots Plus, running on 25th July, 15th and 29th August at UCD; and at the Great Field on Poundbury on 1st August.

Please see Peter Jenner if you can help with either of these activities.

Volunteer roles within UCD
UCD Members are invited to apply for either of the following roles, both of which are voluntary and very important to the life of the church:

1. ​Church Steward
2. ​Lettings Manager

For more details, please contact Michael Humphrey (Senior Steward)

World Church Mission Boxes
If any UCD members would like a collection box for our World Church Mission, please speak to Colin Gannaway (UCD Treasurer), as we would be delighted to have new contributors to this important part of our church life.

Coffee Lounge 
Help is needed once a month with serving coffees and welcoming visitors to the Coffee Lounge on Tuesday morning. It is a pleasant way to spend the morning and a wonderful way to meet other members and visitors to Dorchester. Help is needed from 9 am to 12.30, it is truly not arduous - please see Elizabeth Haynes for more information.

Wednesday Maket Service Stewarding
Help is needed, from the New Year, with Stewarding the Wednesday Market Service.  This is once a month, from 10.15 to 11.15, though if there were more volunteers it could be less often.  This is a simple but important service, giving a warm welcome to our visitors, it is also a good way to meet other members and outside visitors to the church. Please see Elizabeth Haynes for more information.
