When we celebrated the opening of our refurbished premises in Hipperholme, the church family were invited to share their hopes and dreams for Christ Church which are still relevant today:
I dream of music, music, music
I dream of a contemporary church
I dream of a place of great hope for the future
I dream of a place of love and friendship.
I dream of unity with all
I dream of shared work with the community
I dream of a starting place for God’s love to go out into the world,
the community and our families!
I dream of a place where all will feel welcome.
I dream of a church open 7 days a week
I dream of lively worship
I dream of making links
I dream of a place to meet the Lord
I dream of a church where the door is always open
I dream of developing and expanding work and worship
I dream of a place for boys and girls to come and play
I dream of running out of space to seat everyone
I dream of another place to talk with God
I dream of a choir
I dream of a colourful church
I dream of being enthused with hope
I dream of a place of fellowship
I dream of a place of peace
I dream of a place for contemplation in times of sorrow and times of joy
I dream of a place where people will come to know Jesus
I dream of piano, organ, trumpet, violin, guitar and flute
I dream of a happy place
I dream of a time when the people in our community cannot imagine it without Christ Church.
I dream of a place for young and old, poor and rich, women and men, black and white, wise and foolish.
We dream of a place where all are welcome
A place where all can come to know God
A place of refreshment for the journey!
