It was wonderful to gather together in Bethlehem Chapel again (it's like a womb to us) and a real privilege to welcome Rev Sister Margaret Anne from All Saints Convent to celebrate the eucharist with us for the first time. The big turn-out reflected our hunger for the bread and wine, body and blood of Jesus - and it was a holy nourishing after a period of fasting. Toby provided a great soundscape, Chris helped us meditate on St Paul's words about love using the Jesus prayer, and Andrea brought a prayer-provoking image of Christ for us to focus on. The Rusty Bicycle has become a firm favourite venue for the continuing conversation after our worship - and we discovered that children are welcome as long as they don't drink too much or get too rowdy!
