@ James - the chap that heads up the community was there and we'd already spoken, so he came prepared. Most people live very locally to the church, but we're in a village further down the valley.
Comment by Ian MacLaren on January 11, 2011 at 9:50pm

We had one service in December on a morning where heavy snow set in with about a quarter of normal congregation.  The nice thing was that all those who made it really wanted to be there and were in pretty good voice, so the volume was only a little down from full congregation level!

 

We then cancelled the evening service that day.

Comment by James Goodman on January 11, 2011 at 4:42pm

@Tony - I can perfectly understand!

 

So what did the church do - hold a shorter service, draft in someone else from the congregation?

Comment by Toni on January 11, 2011 at 11:19am
Yes - I was supposed to be preaching, and was snowed in. Back in Jan 2010 I walked to the church (3 1/2 miles) but couldn't face doing it through the fresh, deep snow.
Comment by James Goodman on January 11, 2011 at 9:46am

Belated happy new year greetings! (it feels like the year is already well under way...)

Did anyone have major problems making it to church with the snow? On the Sunday before Christmas there were three on the sound desk/visuals, five in the band, one preacher and four in the congregation! (I failed to make it...!)

Comment by Lorraine Doswell on January 10, 2011 at 5:50pm

......and a very Happy New Year to you too Toni, and to all of you.

Comment by Toni on January 10, 2011 at 9:39am

I'm sorry not to have said it sooner.

 

HAPPY NEW YEAR  everyone.

Comment by Lorraine Doswell on October 9, 2010 at 12:35pm
Yep Toni, I do it all the time. I sometimes just can't get the wording right and other times I think 'what a load of rubbish I have just written' and delete it. Another thing, I am always nervous of being the first one to reply, I kinda like to see the lay of the land first. How cowardly is that?

I think you can find almost as many differences as you move from one part of the UK to another. Even in the move from London to Oxford there is a certain degree of "translation" required although at least I didn't have to put new plugs on all my gear!

Wulf, I don't 'deal in stereotypes', that would be racism. I 'deal in' experiences. I've worshipped in North American churches (lived in Canada and the US) and have a lot of american friends I've worshipped with here in the UK and I know the differences are real, not imagined.

The gulf is bigger than most people think. That is not to say that relationships aren't possible. Of course they are. I love my american christian friends. I was just explaining that I feel the same way as Toni. (I think.) Sometimes, the effort involved in doing the simultaneous translation before posting is just off-putting.
