Last night at the Rock Mass we were looking at the interaction between Jesus and the Woman at the Well. I know someone who works for Yorkshire Water so we had an installation of a stand pipe in the centre of church. This linked in with the use of the well known “to be known
I’ve realised we’ve added a few regular songs to our hymnody at Rock Mass with Metanoia. I really should put together a playlist so that everyone can listen in between services. This is Holy Water from Inglorious’ debut album. We discovered Inglorious last year supporting the Winery Dogs before they had released their first album.
Last week I discovered the work of Michael Leunig, cartoonist, poet and writer. I quickly fell down the rabbit hole and became hooked. FuelledByTea pointed me towards Leunig’s prayers.

There are some really great contributors this year and there are a few places left to book as well! The programme includes a blessing of the waters down at the
Just a quick thought about the shift in paradigm we are living through as we move from modernity to postmodernity. We are all using social media as a way of thinking our thoughts. It pops into your head and you tweet it. Then the discussion ensues. This is good and healthy. But as a public
I went on a residential course a few weeks ago and one of my fellow inmates recommended Fontevraud as a place to visit. Once again the vicar is on holiday visiting ABC (another bloody church). Ruth likes to listen to the audio guide whilst I just take in the ambience. When you work in churches
