Bishop Graham Cray, the Archbishops Missioner and lead for Fresh Expressions joined Moot for the Sunday Evening Eucharist service on 16th Feb 2014. Bp Graham has been a long time friend to the Moot Community, and in the homily explored the texts of Mark 1.40-45 and Ephesians 5.1-17 to explore the theme of ‘Costly mercy and transforming grace’. In the Service we prayed for Bp Graham’s continued ministry as he approaches retirement and the continuance of Fresh Expressions of Church.

Well its 2013 and Moot began as a missional community at the Parish Church of St Matthews Westminster 10 years ago as a collective of those who felt called to form a new form of missional community. In time this grew into the New Monastic Community that Moot now is at its home at the Guild Church of St Mary Aldermary in the City of London. This is no small achievement which was and is a challenge to sustain, but is a sign of what is possible through God’s love, vision, hard work and participation in a real community.
This evening we are really pleased that Bp Graham Cray is joining us to speak at our evening Eucharist service, so come mooted or not!

I am pleased to say that Southwark Diocese are holding a study day on Sacramental Fresh Expressions on Saturday 5th November 10.30am to 3.30pm. The day aims to address the questions: How can you be both a Fresh Expression and liturgical? How do you blend ancient tradition and modern culture? How can you encourage spiritual practice in your young people and not just play games?
I am very pleased to hear that Johanna of our Moot Community will be leading a workshop on ‘Hospitality’ which is the key focus of our Host Lounge Project. For downloadable and booking information, please click here
