Lincoln church offers new service for all ages

15 December 2017


All Saints Church in Bracebridge, Lincoln is offering a new, informal act of worship for people of all ages.

‘Praise and Bacon’ is the title of an informal act of worship that is held at the church on the first Sunday of each month (11am), and, together with other ‘traditional’ and non-traditional acts of worship, forms part of the churchs mission to provide opportunities for people to gather together in worship.

As the Revd Andy Jackson-Parr has said, “Praise and Bacon features Bible stories, a simple form of liturgy, accessible songs, prayer activities and interactive talks to enable as many people as possible to engage with an act of worship that draws them into the life and worship of God. We conclude with food (mainly bacon rolls, but vegetarian options are available) and fellowship as we seek to continue to build up the life of the gathered community.”

Earlier this week, Andy was interviewed by William Wright on BBC Radio Lincolnshire, and this feature may be found here (the piece begins 1 hour, 21 minutes and 50 seconds into the programme).

The next gathering for Praise and Bacon will be held on Sunday, 7th January 2018, and all are most welcome to attend. More information on All Saints, Bracebridge may be obtained from the church website.
