Volunteer Opportunities at ACP

  • Volunteering at ACP

    One of the core values of ACP is to be a beacon of light and life on the Seine, calling out to our community to come in and be a part of the mission of Christ. There are multiple points of entry for members of ACP and our Parisian neighbors to serve those in need and our community through volunteer opportunities. If you are looking for a way to contribute, below we have provided a list of opportunities.

  • Contemporary Worship

    Slide Projection Coordinator: Coordinate the projection of the slide presentations during the 13h30 service. Help recruit and train people to set up the projector and run the slides in the weekly contemporary worship service. We would like to build a team of 10 people so that each person can serve once every 2 months running slides during the service.

    Tech Support: Install and break down sound equipment during the 13h30 service. Training will be provided, no experience necessary. Volunteers will need to arrive at 12h15 the weeks they are scheduled for set up and/or stay until 15h for breakdown.


  • Bloom Where You are Planted 2018

    Director: Lead the planning of the upcoming Bloom Where You Are Planted Conference, October 2018

    Bloom Book Updaters: Help update the information in the new Bloom Book. This work can be done from the comfort of your own home.

    Onsite: Volunteers will be needed to help before, during, and after the event on Saturday 6 October.


  • Survival Guide Update

    The Survival Guide is a 12-page document full of information for people seeking food, shelter, and help of any kind. It is a wonderful tool to give to those seeking help from the church. It has also become a great resource for the US Embassy. We need someone to go through the document to make sure that all the information is still accurate and up to date.


  • Worship Liturgists
    Read Holy Scripture passages aloud to the congregation during our 9h, 11h and 13h30 services.


  • Weekday Sanctuary Tidying

    Twice a month during the week tidy the pews and make sure each pew has the correct accoutrements (bibles, giving envelopes, pencils, etc.)


  • Community Life

    The Community Life ministry is responsible for the organization of community events such as Thurber Lecture dinners, the Thanksgiving dinner, Easter breakfast, and more. We welcome new, extra hands who enjoy being a part of creating a welcoming and hospitable environment.

    Help decorate and set up and/or tear down our events.

    Help with food preparation (washing, peeling, cutting, and chopping) as well as baking or preparing desserts, cookies, preparing cheese platters, and other small buffet style snacks. If you're a cook (non-professional is ok) who doesn't shy away from helping prepare a basic meal to fill 50 plates, be sure to contact us!


  • Friday Mission Lunch

    Cook, clean, and serve hot meals to the hungry and homeless in Paris every Friday from 9h30-14h as part of the Friday Mission lunch, at The American Cathedral, 23 Avenue George V, 75008 Paris.


  • Breakfast and Sandwich Ministry

    Prepare sack meals for the homeless, as part of a team every Friday evening (19h-20h) at ACP (room G2).

    Distribute sack meals for the homeless, as part of a team Saturday mornings, 8h30, on the first two Saturdays of the month, and 13h on the last two Saturdays of the month.
