Current opportunities

North Ayr ‘TheGither’ is a church based project working within the area of Ayr North. We work primarily with young people and children, but also have an interest in working with adults with additional support needs, and people recovering/seeking to recover from substance misuse issues. Also, we run monthly outreach events with a particular focus on the good news of Jesus Christ. We welcome everyone regardless of how much, or how little faith they have. We exist to serve our community in a variety of practical ways and are always considering how to improve our approach. Anyone considering volunteering would require a disclosure check to be done. The project would cover the cost of this. Volunteers do not need to have a faith, but would be expected to be respectful of the beliefs held by the church. Not all our activities have a ‘religious’ theme. The music group does not. To support the coordinator with the running of the group. Duties may include: setting up/clearing up; preparing refreshments engaging with people who attend and their carers on an informal basis and assisting the musician by operating PowerPoint.
