FX Pilgrimage Liveblog: Ancient-Future – Changing Church for Changing Times

Posted by on Sep 13, 2009

Sue and Andy Kalbfleisch travelled to the UK in September 2009 to explore fresh expressions of church, and are liveblogging their travels here.

While attending a workshop on “Fresh Expressions and the sacraments” at All Saints’ Milton, Diocese of Ely, I took some time at lunch to look in the sanctuary of this ancient church. To my surprise I didn’t find the traditional Anglican set piece, but a modern hi tech environment; movable chairs, projector and screen instead of service and hymn books, mixing board built into a central control pod at the back  and of course a permanent drum kit which identified some of the music styles that are used in worship. There was even a flat screen monitor so the Presider could see what was being projected on the large screen without twisting into a pretzel. The worship space has been reconfigured to suit their new style of worship.
