« la belle france | Main | greenbelt worship [part 2] »



scratch alt.worship - alas, not a world first - which means maybe we were! we (HOST in Bradford) led similar sessions with young people a few years ago. creative session on the saturday afternoon, put on the worship on the sunday morning. venues included bradford cathedral. we then also did a few of our normal services that way to a much tighter timescale - meeting in the afternoon, break for pizza, and then on with the show.

it's superb visions are doing this. i think one of the misconceptions people have is that alt.worship is difficult to 'do'. it's actually a whole lot of fun. i think the natural evolution of alt.worship may well be scratch services. go guys!


scratch alt.worship is certainly not a world first! - I've been doing them for years - ever since I discovered that the biggest enemy of alt.worship was that the extensive planning was becoming too tiresome for people to commit. The 'scratch' thing works brilliantly, and I shall definitely be one of the "customers" at Visions (FANTASTIC GROUP) to see what happens.
