At the Abbey, we believe that it is important in worship to try to engage all ages. We are fortunate to be able to offer different styles of worship from rich ceremonial to very informal word-pictures and music.
Look at this wonderful picture of the Easter Garden that our Youth group created this year:
Children's Responses: What is Good about Bourne Abbey Church?
During a workshop, children from Bourne Abbey Church were all ask the same question: what is good about Bourne Abbey Church? Their responses can be found below. These were unprompted and the results are entirely their own.
The community feel, everyone is friendly
You get to hear stories from the bible
Stained glass windows
The big bell
The quiet in the morning
The big cross that Jesus died on to sacrifice himself for others
You get to pray, thanking God for supporting you and your family and friends and those you do not know
To be with your family, sharing the experience
I like the pet service
I like the food after the service (tea and biscuits)
Singing the songs I sing at school
When Father Chris does something funny
I like it because it is about God and Jesus
In God’s home you feel special and privileged
The atmosphere, historic and traditional
