Open Church

This morning after HC we had our church open for an hour or so. We were about to close up when a local person came in and just wanted to pray for a while. Afterwards there was a opportunity for a brief conversation. If only we could have our churches open all the time – many are perhaps in more rural areas or where there are stewrads available to keep an eye on things.   Who  knows how many people would come in for some quiet time and prayer?

  1. Hi, it’s me the RD of B, enjoying your reflections. Not sure why your churches aren’t usually open- are they out of the village? All churches in my benefice are and the only problems/vandalism we’ve ever suffered is when one was locked at night. I know many people go into them to pray while they are open from people I meet and what they tell me so I encourage you to give it a try.
