Volunteers make SBC


Stopsley Baptist Church is a diverse church community comprised of people of all ages and from many different backgrounds. We have a membership of approximately 350 people. There are a variety of ministry activities that take place during the daytime, evening and at weekends. The church employs around 30 staff, most of whom are part-time. However, we could not function without the services provided by our volunteers.


“The harvest is plentiful but the workers are few. Ask the Lord of the harvest, therefore, to send out workers into his harvest field” (Matt. 9:35-38).


God has empowered people to do His workthrough the ministry of the Holy Spirit in their lives. He gives all believersspiritual giftsto enable them to do the tasks He wants them to do. God’s objective is that we be instruments of His grace to other people in specific ways through the use of the gifts God is intentional in His distribution of the gifts. He planned it so we all fit together in a way that each person’s contribution matters.


God seesevery ministry as important.In the parable of the talents, the servant with the least was accountable to use what he was given as well as the one with the most (Matt. 25:14-30). The part each person has to do is paralleled to the interdependent working of all the parts of the human body. “The eye cannot say to the hand, ‘I don’t need you!’ And the head cannot say to the feet, ‘I don’t need you!’ On the contrary, those parts of the body that seem to be weaker are indispensable, and the parts that we think are less honourable we treat with special honour. And the parts that are unpresentable are treated with special modesty, while our presentable parts need no special treatment. But God has combined the members of the body and has given greater honour to the parts that lacked it, so that there should be no division in the body but that its parts should have equal concern for each other. If one part suffers, every part suffers with it; if one part is honoured, every part rejoices with it” (1 Cor. 12:21-26).
