Volunteers

Join our team

Here at Bath Abbey, we have a team of over 300 volunteers! We are so grateful to them as they support us in simply everything from helping welcome our visitors to ringing the bells for services. Volunteering could be a great way to meet new people while allowing you to make the most of your interests and existing skills - it also can be very satisfying and a lot of fun. Just ask one of our many enthusiastic and lively volunteers whose ages range from 18 to over 80!

We are currently recruiting for the following volunteers: 

Operations Volunteer

A brand new role for 2021 assisting our Operations Team. Perfect if you’re looking for a flexible volunteer opportunity, Ops volunteers help to prepare the Abbey for events and you might even help run them if you’ve got some tech know-how! To view a full description of what’s involved please click here.

Welcomers

Welcomers are the first person a visitor to Bath Abbey meets, and as the name suggests you’ll be giving a warm, friendly and sensitive welcome to all who enter the Abbey. You’ll also provide the key pieces of information that our guests need to get the most of their visit, letting them know about our Stewards and Chaplains, and any tours, exhibitions or events that are on. To view a full description of what this would involve, please click here.

Stewards

Stewards make visitors from around the world feel at home in the Abbey, by answering questions about the history, architecture and religious nature of the Abbey, or the City of Bath and sometimes, just by having a chat with someone who will appreciate it. It’s a varied volunteer opportunity where you might also be asked to help a person in need - by finding one of the Chaplains for a quiet talk, or to be the eyes of the Bath Abbey team with regard to simple housekeeping tasks and health and safety. To view a full description of what this would involve, please click here

Music Supporters

Would you like to share in the musical highlights at the Abbey? We are currently looking for volunteers to help out with occasional choir activities. We are also seeking someone with needlework skills to oversee the fitting and occasional alteration of choir robes. If you think you may be interested, we'd love to hear from you! Please contact Mary Horner, Music Administrator: MHorner@bathabbey.org or 01225 422462.
