Perhaps that’s ‘where you are ‘ . You’ve wondered what ‘membership’ is all about , but didn’t know how to take the idea any further . Philip is planning a ‘Conversational’ opportunity as a starting point . If you are interested , please get in touch with Philip or , if easier , have a word with one of the church stewards.
