A message from the HOPE centre
We should like to draw your attention to the following volunteering and employed job opportunities. Please do all you can to publicise them in your Churches:
1. Macclesfield Night Shelter – Volunteer Equipment Co-ordinator
The WHAM Night Shelter is to run from the week-end before Christmas to the week-end before Easter inclusive. There is an urgent need for this three month period for an Equipment Co-ordinator, a volunteer who is a good organiser, to check the equipment each week, ensure that it is complete, clean and in good working order, and liaise with Cre8 who transport it from location to location. Anyone who is interested and would like to know more should contact Reverend David Wightman at firstname.lastname@example.org as soon as possible please.
2. Sunday Morning Hospital Services in St Luke’s Chapel – once per month – but come first for a ‘taster’!
A number of Macclesfield Churches support this very valuable initiative but there is an urgent need for more volunteers to ensure that the Service can be sustained.
Volunteers arrive at Macclesfield Hospital at about 10.00am each Sunday, visit patients and encourage them to come to the service in the Chapel. The volunteers then help the patients who wish to come to the service to get to the Chapel. They then take an active part in conducting the service itself, afterwards chatting to the patients and helping them back to their wards. The management and the administrative and the nursing staff of the Hospital are very supportive and helpful.
In the first instance, anyone who is interested and would like to know more should contact Eileen Delight, the Co-ordinator for Holy Trinity Church Hurdsfield by calling her on 01625 428117 or emailing Pip at the Hope Centre.
3. The Message Trust is seeking two key people for its Finance Team in the employed posts of Management Accountant (full-time) and Payroll Officer (part-time).
