You are uniquely gifted to serve a greater purpose

Serving Teams are much more than just fulfilling tasks – they are a place to make a difference, connect with others and work in partnership with a shared ambition. 

We want everyone who belongs to the Forge to have a role that matches their gifts, abilities and passion. We want to build strong communities in our serving teams that ultimately support our mission; to help people find and follow Jesus. There are many opportunities to do this and we would love you to play a small part in the big picture of our church. Register your interest with the contact provided and begin the conversation….
