Come and experience a Church Year all within a few days! 24th-26th July 2018 Summer is nearly here and that means we are approaching Sanctum 2018! This is a fantastic retreat/gathering or sacramental alt:worshippers. If you have never been to The Community of the Resurrection, it takes place in the idyllic monastic setting of The
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.

Some of you may remember that last year there was an Online Nine Lessons and Carols Service. This year is no different and Metanoia are involved in it once again. Check out all of the details over at Nine Lessons and Carols 2012! Check out the hashtag #onlinecarols2012 too! I also updated Metanoia’s facebook url
One of the many things I need to do now that I am back online is sort through all of the tasks that have been backing up. Here is one of the clips of The Rock Mass that I’ve managed to get off my computer and up to YouTube. Thanks to Trash II Treasure for
A lot of people have been expressing an interest in a band T-shirt for Metanoia before Greenbelt. I’ve spoken to the company who made our Silverthorn T-shirts and they will be able to sort out a run of screen printed shirts with the Metanoia Logo on the front and the Rock Mass “Follow Me” logo as a
