A View from the Pew
“I began attending the 10am service at St Ed’s after our family moved to Dringhouses. We had two toddlers at the time, and to be honest we went to our local church more out of convenience that anything else. However, four years on, and we are still here.
All 10am services are similar in liturgy, yet differ from week to week. The family service on the 1st Sunday of the month is the one which stands out the most; with a band, lots of activity, competitions and interaction during its 45 minutes. Children and young people are involved in leading it with other members of the church. The other Sundays have Promise, our children’s church, and a creche for the youngest members of our congregation. As a parent, I appreciate this, because the whole family gets the opportunity to encounter God in ways relevant to us as individuals, and having young children, I am excited to see that more young families have joined us over the past year.
I like being part of the 10am congregation because it is diverse and varied: there are families, busy working professionals, those who have retired and people who have been Christians all their lives, some just starting out asking questions about Jesus, but all wanting to deepen their faith and learn more about God’s love and promises for them.”
