Volunteer With Us!

Volunteers have always been at the heart of MCC Toronto. We would not be the strong, inclusive and welcoming community we’ve become, without the support and dedication of volunteers who help support our Worship Services and our other public programs.

Volunteering is a wonderful way to connect with community, fulfil your passion, pick up a new skill or enrich your faith.

Current Volunteer Opportunities

MCC Toronto is currently looking for volunteers to help fill some critical needs as we get set to resume in-person Sunday morning Worship Service in September. Volunteers are needed in the following Worship Service areas:

Altar Guild

A lit candle. A celebratory banner. The bread and the cup. When we’re gathered for worship, our experiences are enriched by the presence of special ceremonial objects. Volunteers on the Altar Guild see to it that these sacred objects are reverently and properly placed. Altar Guild volunteers can be scheduled to serve during the 9 or 11 AM services and should be comfortable being visible during services.

Communion Servers

For many congregants, partaking in Communion is one of the most meaningful parts of worship. This simple, ceremonial meal of bread and wine follows a pattern established by Jesus himself and makes real Jesus’ promise to be with us always. Communion Server Volunteers share the elements of communion – the bread and the wine – with worshippers as they come forward to receive.

Greeters/Ushers

On a busy Sunday at MCC Toronto, several hundred people pass through our open doors. Volunteer Ushers & Greeters are often the first faces many folks see when they arrive. Members of this team are responsible, not just for sharing a warm welcome with arriving worshippers, but for helping to direct the flow of people in and out of the sanctuary. Volunteers in these roles will also help ensure congregants know and follow Covid-19 protocols for social gathering.

Sanctuary Saints

When MCC’s Sanctuary needs some TLC after a Sunday of vibrant worship, it’s the Sanctuary Saints’ time to shine! Volunteers on this team help prepare our worship space by tidying up loose papers and other items in the sanctuary and doing some light cleaning.

Webcast Ministry (Multimedia)

As we prepare to return to livestreaming our in-person Worship Services, we are now looking for volunteers who can join Duncan and our awesome Webcast Ministry. Specifically, we need technical live broadcast volunteers who can connect audio and video of our Worship Services to YouTube and troubleshoot any possible technical malfunctions or mishaps. If you’re good at solving basic technical and networking problems, we invite you to join our Webcast Ministry Team!

Each of these volunteer areas will be supported with training.
