Apologies

It’s been too long since my last update. One of the reasons for this is quite simple: my dissertation is due on Tuesday. While I am nearly finished (yay!) it has taken up a lot of my time and so I haven’t updated from last week. Another reason is the sheer amount I have to write about my Easter experiences! I went to 3 churches, all of them totally different from each other and had some memorable experiences (and not in a good way!)

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.

  1. Interesting, you’ve not been to any of the churches I’ve been to in my three years of church shopping in Manchester, apart from Sanctus of course.

    • That is quite strange! Feel free to recommend any to me… Do you tend to go for more evangelical ones? It might be because I usually stick to Anglican and quite often High Anglican as well…

      • I reckon I’ve only been to a couple of Anglican churches in Manchester at most. Covered a fairly broad spectrum with the others. I will have to locate my blog post on !Audacious…
