I've foolishly agreed to lead a day for a local hospital chaplaincy team, on how 'fresh expressions' thinking might work in a hospital setting.
With restrictions on when hospital porters are available, the chaplaincy has 1 service a week on a Sunday morning, plus bedside visits. There is nothing for younger people, and as yet the chaplaincy is mainly engaging with patients, not staff.
Here are some of their questions:
What is appropriate ecumenical worship for hospitalised traditional churchgoers who want continuity?
Is it appropriate for Christians in the workplace to pray in the workplace? If so, what kind of opportunity might work?
What kind of corporate spiritual experience, if any, could/should we offer to sick people who don't go to church?
How should we best respond to "say one for me, vicar"?
All thoughts and ideas gratefully recieved.....!!!
