Colin Sedgwick, pastor of Lindsay Park Baptist Church in Kenton, Middlesex and wrote:

“Churches that buck the trend see themselves as communities, or families, not simply as buildings where people gather for an hour and then leave to go back into ‘normal’ life. God is taken seriously but not solemnly; worshippers are participants, not spectators; there is silence, but also noise and laughter; there is structure, but also informality.”
