Who is Holy Ground for?

Holy Ground is for anyone who is interested in engaging with Christian spirituality in a contemplative and creative way and who perhaps finds more traditional models of church a little inaccessible.

Holy Ground offers an opportunity to engage in Christian worship, matters of Christian concern and prayer to those who are interested in the Christian faith but would not necessarily call themselves Christian.

Holy Ground provides an environment where questions can be asked, worship expressed and prayers offered without any expectation of becoming 'a member', friendships can be made and faith journey explored.

Holy Ground is for anyone interested in creative approaches to worship and prayer.
