Seeking Volunteer Treasurer for Christ Church, Stamford

Christ Church in Stamford is a growing church. We are growing through a number of innovative and exciting ministries which we deliver with our strong and vibrant teams!

  • Day Centre
  • CAP Job Club
  • Teenzone
  • StartaFresh
  • Tots n Toast
  • Transport Scheme.


We are looking for a volunteer to join our fun team; who shares our values of serving others and helps us to be good stewards of God’s financial provision at Christ Church.

This isn’t the normal run of the mill finance role – our turnover is big, £194,000 last year, and the role will need a good grasp of accounting procedures.

We are looking for a Christ centred person to serve at the heart our team!
