Peter and Cath Atkins are here. They seek more than a Fresh Expression of existing church. They discuss whether a people's monastery or a village of God might emerge where they are. Today our new vicar, Paul Collins, said 'Many people in the church under-estimate the degree to which the old order is dying. New patterns are replacing the old. Pilgrim places such as Lindisfarne make it clear that spirituality is not dying.' Fresh expressions of church in the form of small groups subsidised by the old parent body are not enough, though they are welcome. Nothing less than villages of God will be an adequate response to the changing patterns.
