Why have an admin office?
To take the workload off the clergy so they can concentrate on the job that only they can do. It provides a centre of information, and gives those outside the church a point of reference.
When & where?
The office is in the church, through the double doors and on the left-hand side. It’s open Tuesday to Friday, 9:30-12:30.
What goes on in the admin office?
The daily running of the office is varied: dealing with phone & caller enquiries, producing the weekly News Sheet, compiling rotas for all the lay ministries in the church, taking bookings for the church hall & managing the fees, completing wedding certificates, dealing with fees for weddings & funerals, photocopying & secretarial work for the clergy, managing the contract for refuse collection, ordering stationery, managing the admin budget.
