Joining a friendly team who set up, prepare and serve hot drinks, home baking, soup at our Tuesday Pop Up Community Cafe which is open to the public from 10-1.30pm. Volunteers are asked to become part of a monthly rota where commitment can be for as little as 2 hours once a month but more often if desired. The cafe exists to build community cohesion and address loneliness and isolation. We ensure that everyone feels comfortable, welcomed and valued.

Main duties include:
Waiting on Tables
Clearing/Tidying up Cafe and Kitchen Area once the cafe has closed
THE CAFE IS CLOSED OVER THE SUMMER HOLIDAYS
Barrhead United Reform Church community café will be closing for its usual summer break on Friday the 27th of June
Are you interested in helping at our concerts and arts events? Do you like music and being in a busy environment? If so, Greyfriars might be the place for you! As an Event Steward, you will greet members of the audience for events. You might pass them a programme and show them to their seats. During the performance, you will sit by a fire exit and ensure audience members are escorted out in an orderly fashion in the unlikely event of an emergency.
Do you want to help people to deal with the challenges of work and life? The Business Connection (TBC) is a charity founded by 4 Christian businessmen to ‘encourage, equip and empower men and women working in the corporate business environment’. Although founded on Christian principles we support people of all faiths and none.
We run fortnightly Tuesday breakfasts at the Holiday Inn Express, Chapel Street, Aberdeen giving folks a chance to meet informally to be encouraged & supported and signposted to appropriate help. We also run a monthly breakfast on the last Friday of the month at the Palm Court Hotel when we have a guest speaker. The topics are aimed at bringing useful content on wellbeing, personal development and practical guidance. In March 2019, TBC held its inaugural ‘Thrive’ conference in Aberdeen. This was to encourage those of a Christian faith in how they could thrive within the marketplace. With guest speakers from across the UK and the USA the excellent feedback received, both on content and quality of the conference, has led to plans being made for Thrive 2020 not only in Aberdeen but also expanding to Edinburgh. Exciting times!
Jim Grimmer, co-founder & managing trustee cut back from full-time work in 2015 to dedicate 2 days a week, on a voluntary basis, to the development of TBC. TBC has now grown to some 300 individuals on the events mailing list and has become known for its work across the UK. Jim is also founder of a social enterprise P3 Business Care bringing personal & proactive care to employees in business in partnership with their employer and with his team, is visiting businesses on a weekly basis across the UK so no longer has the capacity to manage TBC.
The opportunity of Volunteer Operations Manager of TBC has fantastic potential. Currently the fortnightly breakfasts takes place in the City centre however there is an opportunity to expand the breakfasts to multiple locations across the city on different days. There is also work to be done in developing our relationships with the local church ideally identifying a TBC focal point from the business community within each church and creating a network of TBC contacts.
