‘Bank’ Team Members

Do you want to work within a Christian organisation where prayer & seeking to bless others are at the heart of what we do? Do you enjoy practical tasks, but want the flexibility of working on a casual basis? We are looking for people to help on our housekeeping and kitchen teams. 

Resident Community Members

Are you a committed Christian looking to grow in your faith, whilst serving practically and gaining experience in Christian hospitality and living life missionally? You need to have a sense of calling to be here – a sense that this is where God wants you at this time. You are joining a community and need to be committed to meeting and seeking God as a community and wider team. You will need to be willing to serve and help out wherever needed although we do seek to place people on the teams they are most suited to. Community members volunteer in exchange for accommodation, meals and a small allowance.

Maintenance Volunteers
Keeping on top of maintenance with an older building is a challenge and our maintenance man could really do with some help! Even a few hours a month would make a big difference. An aptitude for DIY is helpful but no specific experience/skill set is required.


Pastoral Team

A great privilege we have here at the Greenhouse is to facilitate time and space for people to encounter with God. Working under the direction of the leadership team, we have a team of pastorally-hearted people who volunteer a day a month or more to be on hand to lead chapel services, to offer a listening ear and to pray with our guests. Do you feel this is something you could do?
