XALT Services used to take place in St Mary’s, Bridport, led and attended by Christians from across Bridport twice a month. Just before the nation-wide lockdown, the Bridport Team carried out a review to look at possibly reducing the frequency of XALT to monthly, however, some of the Xalt Team came up with an alternative plan to carry on twice a month by seeking a new base and, with the Bridport Team’s blessing, now operate from the United Church.
Then came lockdown, and plans unravelled a bit!
However, not wanting to wait until the pandemic was over, XALT rebranded, and now ‘Soul Space’ have been producing twice-monthly videos on YouTube. It started with an Easter Celebration, moved on to a four-part series exploring the Book of Ruth and a series called ‘At the Feet of Jesus’ which looks at stories in the Gospel of people who fell, knelt or lay at the feet of Jesus. Here is a link to a ‘Soul Space’ service https://youtu.be/F9AJR9agS1Q
We have moved to the next stage, (since October 2020) a bit closer to live Services, i.e. ‘live screen’ the YouTube videos from the United Church. Please use this opportunity to take part in this ecumenical venture – 1st and 3rd Sunday of every month … hopefully moving in due course to live services with (please God!) Singing!!
Every blessing on behalf of the Soul Space Team,
Rev’d Peter Clark – 01308 425978 URC Minister of the Bridport & Dorchester Joint Pastorate
