Website closing soon

As you may be aware, there has been a re-structuring of church parishes recently. As a result this website will soon be closing - don't worry, the churches won't be!

From now on, please visit the Capel & Ockley website for St. Margaret's news, and the Ewhurst with Okewood & Forest Green website for news of St. John's and Holy Trinity.

Opportunities to help out within the church:

Sound team A team of people take turns setting up and running the sound system for musicians, singers and leaders each week. Training will be given and each person will need to be in charge of the system one sunday a month. You will need to arrive before the service to set up the equipment (microphones etc.), monitor sound levels during the service and pack away afterwards. The only requirement is that your hearing is OK! If you are interested or would like to know more contact the Parish Office on 01306 712594.

Projection team A laptop controls the projector for services at Okewood. No experience is necessary, but a good general understanding of computers is essential, training for the specialist worship software will be given. Each person will be responsible for one Sunday a month and will need to arrive at least half an hour before the service to ensure everything is set up OK (if you can arrive to run through the songs as the worship group practice from 9.30 its best so you know the lyrics are all correct on screen). No preparation is needed during the week - the service is prepared on the laptop by Gill at the Parish Office. If you are interested or would like to know more contact the Parish Office on 01306 712594.

Welcome team We are always pleased to welcome new people to our churches but we are also aware that entering for the first time can be a daunting as well as exciting experience. We are looking for a team, particularly at Okewood, who would make it their priority to look out for newcomers, make them welcome, perhaps sit with them throughout the service and offer them coffee afterwards. If you feel this is something you would like to do, please speak to a church warden or sidesperson, or contact the Parish Office on 01306 712594.
