Volunteering: There is a vibrant tradition of volunteering to help with the work of the Parish, and this provides an excellent way of getting to know people as well as making a real contribution to Parish Life. There are volunteer opportunities with most of the groups in the parish, and we always need help with daily Parish work, such as church sitting, door duty in the Presbytery, etc.

It is the parish’s policy to provide a safe environment in which all children and vulnerable adults may participate fully in every aspect of their Church life.
