Volunteer at Westwood!
There are a wide array of opportunities to volunteer at Westwood - from one time work bees, to volunteering for Sunday service help, to serving on the Board of Trustees. We thank all at Westwood who volunteer in many capacities for the congregation and are part of Westwood's shared ministry.
A New Year Begins
As the new church calendar year begins, we welcome a new influx of volunteers and applaud those who are staying on in their roles! New members to the Board of Trustees, Worship Committee, Committee on Shared Ministry, Endowment Trust Fund, Document Management Administrator, Sound Editors and a new Law Chaplain bring vitality and sustainability to the activities of Westwood.
Westwood Volunteer News, March 2013
For a summary of volunteer roles at Westwood with a focus on the opportunities open for the 2013-2014 church year, read the Westwood Volunteer News, created for the 2013 Stewardship campaign.
If you are interested in any of the roles listed here, you are welcome to contact that committee directly using their group email address, or if you aren't sure who to contact, email Reverend Anne or the Board of Trustees for direction.
Sunday Worship Services
Westwood's Sunday services are led each week by people from within our community. Speakers include the Reverend Anne Barker, people from within our community, and invited guest speakers. The Worship Committee schedules speakers, service leaders, and musicians for worship services.
Contact the Worship Committee if you are interested in leading a service or speaking.
The Worship Committee supports service participants as they prepare for services. If you are planning a service, the Service Leaders' page provides information and resources to help you.
Email Group Moderator - Earth-centred Spirituality
*New listing* Our current moderator, Jen, is ready to pass over the reins of the Earth-Centred Spirituality Google Group. Thanks to her for conceiving the idea to use a Google Group to let the group keep in touch and more easily plan events! The duties for this job are light - passing on messages from other Westwood committees to the group, responding to inquiries about the group (a standard script can be used), and updating people's email addresses or adding new members to the group occasionally.
If you're a member of this email group and value it, consider taking on this high-value, low-duties job! Email Jen for information at email@example.com.
Every Sunday, there are the following four positions to fill. If you click on the links, you will be redirected to detailed descriptions in the Organizational Guide.
- Library, sign & sanctuary
- Coffee hosts
- Sound technician/ greeter (training provided)
- Children's Program Assistant
Please email the coordinator for more info.
Whatever instrument you play, there is a place for you in the musical life of Westwood's services. Share your talent and let's make beautiful music together. Contact Jacqueline for more info or to volunteer.
There are several part-time Sound Editors lined up this year, and one more would nicely support our goal of keeping the sound recordings of each weekly service up to date on the website. Would you like to turn recordings of services into sound files that can be posted on the website for those who cannot attend on Sundays?
Contact the Communications Team.
