Volunteer Opportunities

We can’t do church without you.

We Can't Do Church Without You

Volunteering is the act of a person, family, or group who freely offer their time and talents to an enterprise or task. Volunteering allows you to connect to your community and make it a better place, and volunteering is a two-way street: It can benefit you and your family as much as the cause you choose to help. It is also an excellent opportunity to make new friends, extend social networks, learn new skills or improve current skills, fulfill requirements for school or membership, while helping others in a variety of ways and building Beloved Community wherever you may be.

You may also consider volunteering with All Souls Church to be a spiritual practice; rooting you within the tree of life that is All Souls and helping you fulfill your spiritual needs and growth.

Whatever reasons prompt you to volunteerism, we welcome you! There are a wide variety of opportunities available; in-person or virtual, one day or recurring, large events or occasional needs. We have four categories that the majority of our opportunities fall into: Governance, Community Building, Social Justice, or Spiritual Practices. You are able to learn about most of our opportunities at our Find Your Ministry Fair, which are held twice a year around September and January, or at our virtual Ministry Fair online, year-round (see more information below).

Our volunteer opportunities, including one-off or short-term gigs, can be found on our volunteer management site.

Service activities take many shapes, faces, and all ages to build Beloved Community!

Not Quite Right?

You took the time to look through all the offerings of All Souls and haven’t found the ministry that speaks deeply to you. There were some that are close, but not quite what you’re looking for. 

Please don’t be discouraged. Reach out to the church staff, and let us know what it is you are missing! We might be able to connect you to other members and congregants who have similar interests! If you have the energy and interest in building a new ministry, let us know!
