Serve @ BPC


Helping on a team at BPC is one of the best ways to settle into the church family, make friends, have fun, and be a blessing. We'd love everyone to play a part in this adventure. There are so many ways to get involved whatever your age, stage or background. Get stuck into something for one term or season with as little or as much time commitment as you have.

If you would like to help in any capacity please click on this link to email your availability.  Please state who you are and we will contact you.  

Our Volunteer Form is here.

We've put a few ideas of teams you might like to join below:

Alpha Team – The Alpha Course is one of the main ways people come to faith at BPC, so every term we gather as many people as we can to explore Christianity in this relevant and relaxed way. The team includes those who bring guests, set up, lead groups or are just great hosts.

Office Team – Our Office Manager is always looking for more skills and hands to work on various projects that will continuously grow our church in excellence and capability.

Welcome and Hospitality Team – One of our most important teams! For people who love connecting with new people, linking them up with others, playing a huge role in the environment everyone experiences at our events and making sure everyone has a nice hot cup of coffee and a cake.

Kids Team – We have a number of age-appropriate groups running every Sunday and at special events — from babies through to mid-teens. Our kids leaders have an absolute blast as they invest in our children through all sorts of videos, games, music and stories, bringing Jesus to life in their lives.

Families Team – Reaching out into our community is at the heart of what this team does. We run The Ark Baby andToddler Group, Messy Church, an annual Family Fun Day, engage with local schools through assemblies, after school club and an Easter and Christmas event. We also play a big part in Buckingham Churches Holiday Club.

Sides Person – With current restrictions the Sidesperson role is to welcome the congregation as they arrive, ensure they understand and comply with our current Covid safety procedures, and then during communion usher the congregation forward. On occasions there may be items such as books, notices, service sheets, candles, palm crosses etc. to hand out.  It is a relatively easy role and a great way to get involved and get to know others in the congregation.
Contact Gerry Causer, Sactristan on

Chalice Assistant – Under normal circumstances the Chalice Assistant helps the clergy at communion by administering the wine. However at present the role is to prepare the individual cups prior to the service. 
Contact Gerry Causer, Sactristan on

Server – The role of the server is to prepare the table for communion, assist during communion by ensuring sufficient bread and wine is available, then clear away afterwards. Under normal circumstances it includes leading the procession of the choir at the beginning and end of the service.

Prayer Team – For those who support and bless our community by praying for them and with them, mainly at Sunday services.  We want everybody at BPC to feel comfortable praying for one another whilst we offer further prayer ministry training to those particularly gifted in this way.

Production Team – As a team we train on a range of audio, lighting and visual technology, enhancing the worship and church experience, ensuring the smooth-running, accessibility and excellence of our Sunday services and other events.  We are currently in need of camera operators.  Full training is given. 
Contact Mike or Ali on for more information.

Reading Team – This is a group of confident readers who are not phased by standing at the front of church and reading from the bible. Bible passages for each service are carefully selected by the clergy to complement the biblically-based teaching programme of sermons and talks. Members of a team are organised into a rota and read as often as they wish. Training and support are offered and the teams are organised by leaders for each rota.

Worship Team – A group of passionate musicians and singers who have been chosen to lead our Sunday worship and other events, preparing the way for people to encounter the presence of the living God.

Youth Team – Our older youth are 11-14 years of age and meet during the 6pm service every week to hang out, experience faith in engaging ways and discover what it means to live out that faith in today’s world. This team run the nights and arrange other special events throughout the year.
