Wish to Participate or Volunteer?

Please see our joining page to express your interest. As a Christian presence at the heart of our Gastard community, many people would like to ensure it survives for future generations even if they don’t normally attend services. Its future is not guaranteed as active members are now reaching their 80’s and 90’s, so please consider supporting us in any number of ways: volunteer help, joining our community eco team, financially, coming to services, supporting our events, and more.
