Alton Webteam: June 2016
Alton (still) needs you!
Since November 2014, Alton Town Pastors have sent a team out every Saturday night until May when we switched to Fridays for the month. It is has been a success, and proved to us we are as needed on Friday evenings as on Saturdays.
So, starting this June, we will send out a team on Friday as well as Saturday as our volunteer numbers allow. Currently that means one Friday a month — but if you would prefer a Friday to a Saturday evening, then there is ample opportunity! And remember, if you cannot commit to stay out into the early morning then you can do a shift from 9.30 to 11.30pm.

We continue to recruit volunteers for town pastors. If you are interested please contact firstname.lastname@example.org for a (very) simple application form or return the tear off strip to the ATP Coordinator, c/o Harvest Church.
The best way to find out if this is for you is join us one Saturday evening.
