Volunteer Opportunities

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.

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.

Sunday Service Leaders/Hosts

If the opportunity to meet with others on Sunday morning is important to you please volunteer to host a week. Training and support are available. 

Service leaders open the building on Sunday morning,  greet people and do parts of the service such as readings, candles, and offertory.
