Hey everyone!

It’s nearly time for our weekend away. Ian B will be in touch soon with details if you need them. Basically simple food when you arrive on Friday night, finishing after lunch on Sunday.

Here’s a link to the proposed walk on Sunday morning:

If it’s dry on Saturday and forecast to be wet on Sunday we may well change things around. The idea is to trial a way of praying called ‘Forest Church’, which uses nature-based prayers while out in nature. The worship peeps met last Sunday and have pencilled in 30th June as a Forest Church trip to Bolton Abbey.

So… a couple of questions. Can you think of a reason why we shouldn’t have a trip out on 30th June? And… do you think it should be just for regulars, open to people we invite, or publicly advertised, a la Cafe Theologique?

Let Simon or Luisa know what you think, or comment here.


Two dates!

Hi everyone!

Thanks for Doodling again. Here are the dates for our two planning meetings:

Music and worship (and creativity in general, and maybe a chat about an album): Sunday 26th May 10am, at the Bennetts – 24 WHA

Strategy (looking particularly at small groups, mission and our membership structure): Thursday 30th May 8pm, 15 VR

No-one has to come, but please do if you want to contribute!

Much love,


Jamie Fletcher

Yesterday was a fantastic gathering at James & Giselle’s. I videoed Jamie’s performance which can now be viewed below:

I am a Director, Musician and Performer based in Leeds and I wrote this song about 5 years ago when I was a part of Pointed Arrow Performance’s core artistic direction team. The theatre company comprised of a variety of faith perspectives and would actively encourage conversations and dialogues about faith, politics and everything in-between. It was through the work we made as a theatre company making performances for public spaces and non-theatre venues as well as the everyday conversations we had with each other and with the different communities we made work with and for that I found my way back to God.

I started a new journey or at least a new chapter, a real honesty and openness with God, learning that challenging and wrestling with different thoughts and ideologies was a healthy part of being a good Christian. I guess in a way this is my love song to God. A way to give thanks.
