Belonging at Sheldon
The day to day work of the community is shared with staff members, volunteers and alongsiders. We each have particular roles, but those roles have a habit of changing and developing over time as the needs of the ministry emerge, skills develop and personal circumstances change. We have a good track record of being creative and resourceful in adapting to change - change being an important way of staying the same!
We collaborate closely and pay careful attention to detail as we seek to give guests the best possible care. Our community life includes a rhythm of shared prayer, meetings and meals that adapts to the seasons. Being mainly introverts we also value our personal space and individual interests.
As a team we are committed to each other and to guests, we work hard, life has plenty of variety, we share the tears and more often the laughter together.
