One of the aims of the Open Day was to consult with the community about what people want to see in the new building. We had a ‘suggestions table’ where people could write their suggestions and ideas for activities and the leadership of the church will look at how we can implement some of these ideas over the next few weeks and months.
The ideas suggested were:
Art & crafts
Older people’s meetings
Saturday coffee mornings
Christian Singles’ nights
Alpha courses (for younger people as well as for adults)
Teaching young people a trade
Perhaps the one I found most encouraging was the comment “more days like today” which was seconded by other people writing underneath! Having fun and showing people that church and fun are not incompatible are important.
The badminton club will definitely be re-starting and we hope to run Saturday coffee mornings from September. In the meantime, if anyone is interested in helping with these activities or has any more suggestions, you can contact us by emailing firstname.lastname@example.org
