Cafe Team

Being part of a café team is an enjoyable and fun experience during United. You will get to work with a dedicated team throughout the week and rotate on shifts so you will be able to see some of the talks and worship. If you are friendly and like to serve people in a practical way, then this role could be for you!

We will have several different café teams across the site and you can apply to be at one of your preferred charities once you do this, the team leader for that particular café will check your application and let you know if they have space for you. If you have experience as a Barista or shop/catering experience, then please do apply. Some training will be given so experience isn’t always necessary. Please note that Cafe teams for 2019 are tbc but will be announced on this page.

The shift patterns

Cafes may stay open during the day off, although the café managers will try to arrange shift patterns to allow for team to get a break.

Expectation for team members

Those who volunteer for New Wine teams at United do so based on their Christian profession and way of life. As a team volunteer, your conduct on site is expected to be consistent with New Wine's ethos and understanding of the teaching of the New Testament.

Part of New Wine’s ethos is our adherence to the Evangelical Alliance (EA) basis of faith and in submitting your team application you are acknowledging your acceptance to do the same.
