Give us a pew

Church pews, what are they good for? Keeping the congregation awake? A job creation scheme for osteopaths? Making church as uncomfortable as possible for visitors? Playing how many splinters can I collect in one sitting? The Diocese of Chelmsford has come up with another use. As part of the Living Distinctively initiative to help people be a transforming presence in their communities the diocese has launched the Chelmsford Holding Cross. 10,000 have been made, with some coming from our partner dioceses in Kenya and many coming from church pews. Here's the first part of the story, featuring our wonderful curate Katie.
