What is 'Table Church'?

Table Church is an informal approach to worshiping learning and growing together that has evolved at St Lawrence's. It arises out of a desire to include everyone, whatever their background, and to support one another as we explore  together and discover more about living out our Christian faith. We gather round a great big table, as a family might do to share a speacial meal, and refreshments are served. Most of the elements you would usually expect to find in Sunday worship are included; such as stories from the Bible, prayers and songs. We learn and explore together through asking questions and sharing stories.
