Volunteer at Union Chapel

If you have some time to spare and would like to get involved with the work going on at Union Chapel, we have a variety of different volunteering opportunities.

Volunteer at Events

We're looking for folk to work at gigs and events primarily promoting our Membership scheme. This is a great opportunity to meet new people and support the charitable aims of Union Chapel membership - to raise money for the restoration of this unique building and for Margins Homelessness Project. It's a busy public facing role in a friendly environment.

Daylight Music

Are you free on a Saturday morning and good and getting yourself out of bed (not too early)? 
Would you like to be involved in music showcase events (award winning) Daylight Music? 
This relaxed but professionally run series of events needs people to help collect donations, answer visitors’ simple questions, assist the performers, look after the merchandise stall and generally make sure everything runs smoothly each Saturday morning, with the show usually happening from 12noon-2pm. You’d be part of the friendly team run by the producer Arctic Circle. A little bit of clearing up afterwards. You don’t have to indulge in drinks and snacks as part of the job, but they will be available in the vicinity from the Margins café that runs during the show!
Visit the Daylight Music page, and facebook for a feel of what its all about.

The Friends of Union Chapel Building Workdays

The Friends of Union Chapel were founded in 1982 to help restore and preserve the fabric of Union Chapel. Whether you are a heritage lover, crafts person, restoration expert, gardener or DIY enthusiast, all ages are invited to take part in the restoration and care of this magnificent building and be part of one of the most exciting stories in Islington.
The Friends meet at the Chapel every last Saturday of the month to tend to the garden, polish the brass work, fix the guttering, and all manner of other diligent and curious activities, not forgetting the well-deserved tea and cake break at half time!

If you'd like to get involved contact Anthony Richardson for more details
