The Scriptures have numerous verses relating to hospitality and making people, especially the stranger, feel welcome. Our welcomers extend the hospitality of our community to all who pass through the door of the church.
What they do
Welcomers stand in the porch of the church and welcome people to our Sunday Masses. They greet them with a warm smile and pass them a copy of our newsletter and the books they will need to participate in the Mass. If a person is new to or visiting our parish they will help them orientate themselves providing key information as required. Welcomers are the first point of contact with our community and first impressions count.
How you can help
If you like meeting other people and have a passion for church then consider becoming a welcomer and joining a rota of people.
How they can help you
If you are considering coming to our church or new to church and have a question, just approach the welcomer at the door and they will only be happy to help.
For more information contact the parish priest (Maesteg) or Christine Took (Aberkenfig).
