Church revamps Sunday services

A CLEVEDON church will be closing its doors for 10 Sundays in the hope of reaching more members of the community.

In place of its traditional Sunday services, St Andrew’s Church will hold a series of multimedia sessions at Mary Elton Primary School in Holland Road to discuss how the traditional ten commandments can be applied to modern life.

Called just10. the meetings will be held from 10am every Sunday from February 13 to April 17 and will give people the chance to challenge and explore the meaning of the traditional Christian rules.

Reverend Terry Baillie said: “We feel the time is right to think about how we live in the 21st century and it is a wonderful opportunity to open that to others of all faiths or none.

“So we are coming away from our own enclave to work with people in the community.

“We have old rules and some are rather quaint and don’t apply to the way we live now.

“We want to discuss how to apply them in the 21st century.”
