The goals of the Volunteer programme are to better partner, retain and integrate the volunteers into the COSC team. We aim to provides clarity on the objectives and roles of volunteers’, maximise our volunteer's God-given gifts for service and to develop volunteers as effective helpers.
Volunteering begins with a short chat for us to know one another better, followed by briefing and training, placement, and then commencement. Regular review sessions will be conducted to connect with the volunteers and to better understand any concerns volunteers might have.
As a volunteer, you will receive ministry updates, opportunities and prayer requests from us.
