29.8.16 Appeal for church car volunteers
Unfortunately, for a numbers of reasons including health, a number of volunteers have had to give up which has resulted in a shortage of volunteers to cater for those who cannot attend church without assistance. Unfortunately we are all getting older and more members are requiring assistance to attend church.
As you know our church car run service is a life line to many of our members and a very important part of our pastoral care.
We bring seven people to Church every week with the help of 30 drivers. Each driver does the trip at least three times a year and sometimes four times a year. We are very grateful for their support but it would be good to have more drivers.
There are two routes – one largely in Houston with three passengers and one covering Crosslee and Linwood with four passengers. Every driver receives a full list of contacts detailing addresses and phone numbers so that they can contact the passengers, and if a date is unsuitable arrange to switch duties with another driver.
If you can help us to maintain this valuable service, please contact:
