coming up…

Christmas in the basement, this sunday, between 5 and 7 pm… email me to rsvp. We tried to keep this low key, i’m not sure we’ve succeeded – we never have yet.

I’m then concentrating on prison stuff for a couple of weeks, including worship in the lead up to Christmas and on Christmas Day in Port Phillip Prison, and making bookmarks to hand out as gifts in the prisons… then we’re on to NCYC in the first week of January, where a few of us are planning an alternative worship service for the convention. This is proving one of the trickiest alt worship things i’ve been involved with – the space we’re using has only just been finalised, and the venue is such that we won’t be able to have all 1200 people together at any point in the service, and there’s really only one spot that will ‘seat’ a group of people [400 seats], so we need to do installations / stations for 800 people, and work out a system of moving people safely through hallways and foyers, and rotating the whole group through the auditorium … Some of it will need to be outside, which is fine unless it coincides with a Melbourne summer storm [at which point we might just all adjourn to the Skinny Dog to drink gin and tonic]. Of course, we have no budget, very limited tech resources and only two hours to set up… luckily, we love a challenge… and function best with no sleep…

… then it’s Valentine’s Day – we’ll be working on promotion for that next week … it’s a fabulous and frightening couple of months coming up…
