One of the many privileges of my role is in leading worship in the schools of Burrington and Wrington. That will not involve all
the children in Redhill, but quite a number. This worship can take the form of ‘Open the Book’, a dramatic telling of a Bible
story, through to a discussion exploring what difference God and the Christian faith might make to our
lives. Whatever the theme, the intent is the same, to share a sense of hope in God by exploring the possibility of:-
1. There being more to life than only that which we can touch and control.
2. Never needing to feel totally alone and hopeless.
3. There being a hope for the human race that goes beyond simply surviving.
This is all about our personal relationship with God. That may be a very personal thing to you, which you express privately in
the garden or by by enjoying our countryside. Or, the exploring of your relationship with God, might be something that you
would like to do with others of a similar mind. You might want this for yourself, or for your family, or to be something
that you do with your family and others. It has been the experience of many across the country, and wider afield, that exploring
your relationship with God with others and across generations is both deeply rewarding and tremendous fun.
This is the essence of what the church should be to its community. For some people traditional church services do exactly
that, and our current Sunday services do have a strong sense of joy. But this is not right for everyone. Some may prefer
something as informal as a Cafe Church, where we sit around table sharing coffee and croissants, discussing the evidence of
God in our Papers, or in a Video Clip, or even in a Bible passage. The things that trouble us, we might offer up to God, asking
for His help.
Christ Church is looking at providing something of this ilk to Redhill, to see if it is helpful. Whether it is something that we can
enjoy together and enjoy with our families. If you are interested, please get in touch. I will be making enquiries about interest in
this around the village over the next few months.
Wishing you peace and joy,
