Castlehold Baptist Church

Our teams

Be part of a caring, serving community on the lsle of Wight!

Integral to our faith is the understanding that we are called to serve. Much church activity depends on teams of volunteers. Some are front-of-house; others work behind the scenes. All are equally valued. Each of us has talents and skills – though we don’t always recognise them until we try something new. Volunteering for a team can bring unexpected blessings. If you already attend Castlehold and have a little spare time, would you consider joining one of the teams below? To find out more – contact us

Our teams – all of them friendly and welcoming!

Church cleaning

To clean the church weekly, ready for the Sunday service. Currently a small band of dedicated volunteers work, in pairs, on a rota basis. More people joining the rota would be hugely welcome.


A team that supports the church in various ways, planning and organising events, and, on occasions, providing refreshments.


Two teams: one to decorate the church for Sundays; one to dismantle the display on Mondays and distribute the flowers in the local community

Mission Tank

Our ‘ideas’ team, with focus on local outreach. Blue-skies thinkers especially welcome! Past initiatives have included a forest picnic and activity afternoon for families, and the gifting of flowering plants around the neighbourhood.

Musicians & singers

A vital part of our worship on Sunday mornings, this team also holds a mid-week, evening practice session.

Pastoral care
