This weekend a conference will be held at St John's Woolston, Christchurch, on the subject which is rapidly gaining a number of Christian leaders' attention, Messy Church. Some further info about Messy Church is here. Quite a few visitors are coming from around NZ. If they arrive at the airport then the first five kilometres or so of their drive through Christchurch will demonstrate very few clues that we have had a major earthquake. But Woolston is on the east side of our city, so as they complete the journey there will be plenty of broken buildings and vacant spaces where buildings once stood to see. And depending on the route taken, some roads may not be level.
Thankfully, St John's Woolston itself is as solid as a rock, so the conference can go ahead safely.
It would be nice, however, if the after shocks stopped. There were some more in the night.
Rock 'n' roll!
