Directory of Churches we have visited in our travels along the waterways.

We are enjoying attending different churches as we travel around the network. We both set down our original roots in the Anglican Church. But, over more recent years, we have attended "Free" Churches - Lancing Tabernacle, then Sompting Community Church. Our last regular place of worship before we left was Jubilee, a New Frontiers Church in Worthing. We are still in touch with, and are supported by, our small (home) group there.

Since moving aboard, it has been a privilege to share worship at other churches, of various denominations. Having spent a lot of time in the Rugby area, while our boat was being refitted, we attended Rugby Christian Fellowship. Not only were we made to feel very much at home there, we have also been adopted as their missionaries on the waterways! Following the death of Tim's father, we spent several months attending Bridge Church in Newbury. Tim even got to play his bass guitar there! We now regard this as our "home" church. The "Good Ship" is back on the move again, cruising the Inland Waterways. Our ministry is slowly taking us around the entire connected network.

Whatever church we have attended, we have always been made to feel welcome, and we are happy to share our story.

Braunston Parish Church at night.

Braunston Parish Church.
"Cathedral of the Canals".
Famous amongst the boating community
as the church where weddings took place
amongst the working boat people.
Still stands proud over the canals,
and can be seen on the approaches
for some considerable distance.
