The Bread Church

In May I visited Liverpool and went to the premises of 'the bread church'. Nothing was happening bread-wise or church-wise because we were just there for a meeting, but it was interesting to see these particular premises. People meet there just to make bread and chat. There is often some sharing of food and some worship. The fascinating story is told in Barbara Glasson's Mixed-up Blessing (Inspire, 2006). It's a new way of church which Barbara describes as scarecrow ministry - "like a scarecrow I felt that my job was to watch and wait" (p. 88/9).
