holy::ground is now up and running. It is a merger between sacred:space (Christchurch Woking) and Holy Ground (Trinity Methodist)
holy::ground is a fresh expression (FX) of church, that meets twice a month at st michael’s sheerwater. 'we are creative, experimental and believe in having fun as well as exploring what it means to live well and build community together.'
The website is coming on worth having a look at.... and if you are interested in participating or finding out more there is a facebook group you can join
And here is the programme for autumn to give you an idea of what we have been doing (ground we have passed) and what is still to come (the journey ahead) ....
