Servers are volunteers who help at Eucharist and other major services. They assist the priest during the service with a number of duties.

Tasks include carrying the Cross (crucifer) or the candles (acolytes). Occasionally at special services there may be incense so a thurifer is needed. Servers can carry banners, read the Gospel and assist with the preparation of the altar at communion services. Experienced servers may administer the chalice.

Volunteering opportunities for this role will be advertised on the main volunteering page when they arise.
