On most 5th Sundays (not all) our church gathers to take care of the land, garden and building that God has entrusted to us, working with our hands together, gardening, cleaning, repairing etc.
All are welcome, even if you are visiting for the first time — it’s actually a great chance to really get to know people more closely, working side by side. No skill level required, and all are welcome, come as long or as short as you can manage — just make sure you are dressed in clothes you don’t mind getting dirty!
Communal lunch provided afterwards.
On the day there will be a job-coordinator – they can help you find a task to get stuck into.
It’s pretty different to our normal Sundays, but it’s always fun and it’s still the church, gathered.
