I am part of a small but growing christian community based in Witney in Oxfordshire. I am the founding member. We meet weekly mainly at my house. We are called 'The Well' and consist mainly of those on the margins of society - we include those with backgrounds of abuse, mental health issues, divorce, single parents, the unemployed, disabled etc. We have been meeting for about a year now.
We are trying to practice community living, mutual support and sharing our possessions and we are challenging ourselves to live simply to give away what we can and to be a blessing to our community where possible. Most of us live in social housing and our friends and connections are mostly marginalised people, those who don't feel comfortable in institutional church.
Are you involved in some form of intentional community or community of intention?
Yes - see above.
Are you involved in some form of emerging or fresh expression of church?
Yes see above.
