Our new name

by on May 6, 2011

You’ve been waiting for it, and here it is. It’s not very flash, though.

After long deliberation and lots of suggestions, we’ve decided to call the church

Canterbury Community Church

Yes, I know, the usual criticisms apply. However, we had special needs and this name seemed to meet them better than anything else did. I won’t bore you with the whole story.

So there we are! We hope to create a lot of community in Canterbury, and see lots of people brought in to Jesus’ community. We want our church to be totally plugged in to the local community, and for the people around here to feel that we’re a church that’s for them – for the whole community and inclusive of them. So the name hints at a fair bit of our church life and vision. I think it should serve us well.

I thought I’d include some other church names and slogans that we drew inspiration from.
