Volunteer Opportunities

A compassionate community of free religious thought, inviting all people to rest, grow, and serve the world.

Westwood relies on the volunteer activities of its members and friends to fulfill our purpose to be a compassionate community of free religious thought, inviting all people to rest, grow and serve the world.

We always have opportunities to serve and to learn! We provide training and support for all of our volunteers. Our volunteers are active in all the areas represented on this web site, and are delighted to help newcomers get connected to an area of interest.

Volunteers don’t get paid, not because they’re worthless, but because they’re priceless. Sherry Anderson

Technical Stuff?

Every Sunday Morning, and for special events, we rely on a team of volunteers that include one or two technical support people to run the Zoom meeting, monitor the chat and record the service or event.

Would you like to learn? No experience necessary. We’ll be happy to provide training and a mentor to get you going.
