Please Help Us!

Volunteering in Bowdon Parish

For many years we have been blessed with many special people who find the time to put others first. We are so thankful for your time and efforts in helping the Parish and those less fortunate – we couldn’t do it without you!

We have about 250 volunteers leading and assisting with the running of our many church groups and activities, which include anything from cleaning the church to supervising a Duke of Edinburgh hiking expedition.  Not all of these people are regular worshippers but all are welcomed and offered ways of connecting more deeply if they wish to do so.  All these groups enable us to connect with our parishioners, thus giving us an opportunity to help them in the journey of belonging and of believing.

If you have some spare time, please consider donating a few hours to our voluntary services.

Scouts 4th Bowdon

We are keen to recruit new leaders, male and female, and would be delighted to hear from anyone who would be interested in joining us. If our search is unsuccessful, we shall be unable to continue as a mixed troop, to our immense regret. Full training and support is available from our happy and experienced team. If you are interested, do please contact me on 07715 541 114 or via the Parish Office, 929 1537.

The Voluntary Transport Group

The Voluntary Transport Group continues to be very busy taking people with sight and mobility problems to attend hospital and clinic appointments.

The drivers find the work very fulfilling and are happy to be able to put something back into the community. Drivers are reimbursed for their petrol expenses at the rate of 45p per mile and are issued with identity windscreen badges. Most of the hospitals we visit have allocated us designated parking bays.

If anyone feels able to give some time to drive our disadvantaged clients to their appointments, we should be very pleased to hear from them. It does not have to be a big commitment and a couple of hours occasionally would be much appreciated.

Therefore, as God’s chosen people, holy and dearly loved, clothe yourselves with compassion, kindness, humility, gentleness and patience.
