Changes to this blog

Hello readers, today I have included a number of changes to the blog. Firstly, I’ve learnt how to embed image and video files, so you won’t have to leave this site to view pictures of Manchester churches.
Secondly, I’ve written a massive new post about my time in St Chad’s, Ladybarn last sunday, which is almost certainly the first blog post to include the phrase “I am theomorphic.”
Thirdly, I’ve included a poll giving you readers the opportunity to choose what I’m doing this sunday. (for more information visit this post.)

I realized that as the number of visits I describe increases, it’s going to become a bit more confusing to navigate, so I’m currently working on creating categories based on geographical location, and as I branch out, denomination, to make things easier. (Edit: This has now been done. I have also put up a “widget”, which I think is the same thing as a doodad or a thingamajig, that allows you to subscribe to this blog!) The reason behind all this added change is the fact that I have finished the first chapter of my dissertation!

Hope you enjoy the changes!

About churchshopper

CS is a Manchester based student looking for God, or more specifically, looking for Church. I have been "church-shopping" for a few months now, and I have realized that there are a large number of people who share my situation. Perhaps you have just moved to Manchester and have not found a church that appeals to you yet. Perhaps you have become disillusioned with your old church and fancy a change. Perhaps you have no history of church-going, and are interested in what the fuss is about. Because this blog is readable by everyone, CS will attempt to make it accessible and not too filled with ecclesiastical (church-related) jargon, or at least with a bit of clarification. About me: I have history of being involved with an evangelical youth movement, but it was far too conservative for me. My negative experiences there, as well as growing doubts and uncertainties in my head, led to me stop attending church for a number of years. Over the past year, however, I have been filled with a spiritual yearning for worship and community. I have an appreciation for the theology of Rowan Williams, the Archbishop of Canterbury, Tom Wright, the retired bishop of Durham, and Dave Tomlinson, author of "Post-Evangelical". This blog will chart my journey around the various worship communities in Manchester.
