Teamwork in All Souls – 2017
Children & Youth
Children’s Sunday Groups
We want children to have a fantastic time here on Sundays! The children’s groups are led by teams of volunteers. You don’t need teaching experience to contribute: simply a sense of fun and a commitment to the wellbeing of children. We provide training and loads of support.*
Underground (for Years 7-9 – at the 10am & 4.30pm) and Overground (for Year 10+ at the 4.30pm) give space for conversation, prayer and fun. Leaders need a commitment to helping young people grow in their faith and a willingness to be open about their own – plus a good sense of humour!*

Sunday Service Teams
The Welcome Team greet people at the door on a Sunday, providing a friendly face and helping newcomers feel at home. The Refreshments Teams serve coffee, tea and snacks and add to that friendly welcome. Team members come a few minutes before the service to help set up and afterwards to clear up.
If you can wield a (computer) mouse then you could make a big difference to Sunday worship. Ensuring that the correct words and images are displayed is a crucial job each Sunday. Training provided.
Our sung worship is led by a team of musicians and singers – would you be interested in joining? If you can play well and confidently (from chords, not just the notes) or if you have a strong voice, why not find out more?
Midweek Community & Outreach
Across our four Ivybridge-based projects, we aim to serve the needs of members of the local communities through befriending at our Cafes, provision of emergency food at the Foobank and teaching conversational English in our Thursday afternoon classes. All the projects are staffed by teams of volunteers – the main requirement simply being a willingness to chat, be friendly and help out.*
Hundreds of local families have made Wednesday mornings a much-loved part of their week. Run by a team from All Souls, Little Souls provides a safe, welcoming and fun environment for small children and their parents or carers – and great coffee too! It’s currently All Souls’ biggest regular connection with local people who wouldn’t normally go to church.*
Messy Church / Children’s Events
Our after-school children’s events aim to give local children a great creative and fun time alongside an engaging Bible story and act of worship. The team oversee tables of crafts and help serve food to the 80+ children who come along.*
