Direct Services - Chapel Porter

The main role of volunteers in this position is to assist in bringing patients from their wards to the Chapel and back again once the service is done. May include walking with a patient, or pushing a patient in their wheelchair.

Other duties may include: greeting patients and their families at the entrance to the Chapel, assisting them in finding a seat, distributing hymn books, bulletins, etc.

As a volunteer, we also ask that you remain alert to the needs of the patients throughout the service, assisting to find hymn numbers, sitting beside patients who may require some encouragement, etc.

The Sunday Service starts at 9:30 am so volunteers would be required to be at the hospital by 9:00 am. Commitment would be at least once/month.
