Thoughts on the church ,change and other stuff!
interesting and another book to add to the list :)) Nigel (hubby) has pastors every week asking for space to hold their church services. Nigel already has three other churches using his church on a Sunday. This is very common in Barking & Dagenham.
Thanks Judith, sounds exciting ! There are real signs of encouragement here too but the picture in London appears even more so Charles
Very interesting article, Charles! I notice that "Fresh Expressions" is mentioned as a new Anglican initiative. Our church took that on board and out of it came "St'A's 4 All" ((Pronounced Stars for all!) which is a sort of text -speak version of "St Aidan's for All!!!" This is held in a local Primary school, for children of all ages, and involves them in craft and drama and all sorts of activities- refreshments- and then worship and a story with Paul Cain, who is truly gifted with a ministry for the youngsters. This has brough many young families into our church, including a Chinese family who are totally committed.
