There are lots of ways to get involved in the life and work of Wesley United Church. Both members and adherents can take active and fulfilling leadership roles in our congregation. A warm welcome awaits you in each of our committees and groups. These include our men’s, women’s, children’s and youth groups, our church choir, and the various committees that make our church run. With so many opportunities, the hard part will be choosing.
Perhaps you would like to attend Niagara Presbytery meetings as a Church representative, or maybe you would like to get involved in Cave Springs Camp (a United Church Camp in Beamsville) as a corporation member. We have a large and dynamic Pastoral Care team involved in visitation ; a growing number of children in Sunday School needing teachers willing to help with an interesting and focused curriculum; and a Church Council looking after the day to day operations of our Christ centred congregation which occasionally adds new ‘members at large’. Chairpersons of the various committees (mentioned below) make up most of the membership of Council.
If your talents lead to specific areas of interest or expertise, there are additional opportunities on our Committees such as Christian Development; Finance and Stewardship; Membership and Outreach; Memorial; Ministry and Personnel; Property; Special Events; Worship and Music. Meetings are typically once a month September through June.
Sound interesting? We hope so! If you would like to take a more active role at Wesley United Church, please contact Maggie in the Church Office for the names and phone numbers of the persons leading the committees or groups that interest you. We are a most welcoming congregation and look forward to having you join us. No experience is necessary – just a desire to make a real difference in the life of our growing congregation in service to God in Welland and throughout the world.
We would like to welcome volunteers to participate on any Wesley United committee.
Committees especially in need of support are:
Finance and Stewardship
Membership and Outreach
Property and Maintenance
Please apply to any of the committees and bring your personal and professional skills to enable Wesley United to continue to grow.
For more information, please contact any member of our nominating committee
