Experienced churchgoers are familiar with the problem of getting people to attend a service on a Sunday. The decline in the ‘traditional Sunday’ and of faith in general mean that people now have other commitments on Sundays, many of them unavoidable.
So what does the church do? There are several communities that have tried meeting at alternative times. One, in Halifax, meets on a Saturday evening and is called the Saturday Gathering. They have even had baptisms and confirmations there.
Is this a creative approach to a mission situation? Or does it compromise the link with our belief in the Resurrection?
