Inspiring models

There are two particular projects on the expressions DVD which have set me thinking - in particular, thinking that we could do similar things where we are.

The first is Messy Church in Portsmouth, a wonderful child centred congregation featuring arts and crafts and food - what more do you need? The other is Nightshift at Hereford Baptist Church, in which the church opens late at night to offer hot drinks and conversation to people going home from clubs - what could be simpler?

Both these ideas seem obvious when you see them - but only when someone else has thought of them!

Anyway, I'm buying the DVD for my leaders and we'll talk about these and other ways of being church to see if there are things we could be doing here.
