New ways of being and doing church communities.
Experimental communities of faith.
Under the authority and guidance of the Church of England.
We explore the Bible together in a number of ways - one of which is through regular video content.
This is made available to anyone who might want to engage with it on Vimeo.
Our communities can watch the content as many times as they want before we come together.
We encourage questions, disagreement, personal research and/or creative response to the material. When we come together, we have already been thinking about the subjects (mostly), and it makes our time together much more simple and fruitful.
Life, however, is complex, and sometimes people arrive at our community and haven't had a moment to breathe all week, let alone watch the content.
That's just life.
If you go to the RESOURCES section of this site, you can peruse them to your heart's content.
How do we do faith community?
We meet in a variety of ways already, and we expect these to increase.
Like the sound of us?
You're welcome to join us
Want to get involved?
We're really low-pressure, but deeply committed.
If you're interested in either exploring faith with us for the first time, or reconnecting through one of our communities, the first step is to meet one of us (probably Rev Alex, but not necessarily) for a coffee, a snack and a natter. Please do get in touch, even if its just another excuse for Alex to eat something!
Never done this before.
Feel like you're searching, but have no church experience.
You're far from alone, in fact if you're under 35, you're probably in the majority on the Isle of Man right now. Use the contact form at the bottom of this page, and meet Rev Alex for a coffee somewhere. We'll be able to talk together about your search, your questions, what you feel God may be doing in you, and what we (or someone else) could do that might help you grow towards God. It'll all be at your own pace, and in ways you can easily access.
Have done this before.
Feeling drawn back to church after a gap.
For a few people, the safe space of our small communities has been exactly what they needed to feel their way back to faith after a sad experience, or a bad experience. Sometimes church has been the problem, but not always. Let us be a healing space for you to come back in at your own pace, and then either stay with us, or move to a more traditional form of church that will suit you better.
Part of a church, but wanting inspiration.
We would want you to stay in the church you're currently part of, but you're welcome to watch what we do, even come and visit, as long as the goal is to get fired up, inspired, and to take that back to your home church community. We would love it if what we did brought extra life and energy. We have been tasked to be a church that truly builds in to others, no questions asked, no hidden agenda. We are all God's church - one church, one body, one Spirit. We want to live that way.
So get in touch for a natter, a cuppa and probably a snack of some kind.
Let's discern between us what God's saying to you and where you fit, and let's allow life to flow through it all.
