Blessèd times at St C’s

CrossMembers of the  church ministry team shared what they considered special moments in recent church life.

It’s a varied and interesting list.

What would you add?

  • The Carol Service, The Easter Vigil.
  • Practices for events, especially the Carol Service.
  • The wonderfull 24 hour prayer vigil – and the early morning breakfast during it.
  • Times when we have been bold in our witness (eg on LGBT issues),
  • Shared meals (eg at Petra, Russian restaurant and soup lunch).
  • Walsingham Pilgrimage.
  • School choir and University orchestra performances and the vibrancy they brought
  • The range of welcome we give in our space
  • A school child calling by with her mother to pray and light a candle
  • The natural part children have in Sunday Mass – at the consecration, the Angelus …
  • Times when we connect with the local community (walking the boundary etc…)
