feig and the cathedral
It was very good to catch up with Michael Volland when he came to Oxford on Monday. Michael is a Pioneering Minister in the C of E and has started feig - a small emerging missional community in Gloucester. Good on the Diocese of Gloucester and Gloucester Cathedral for creating space to make this happen. Michael has been given 7 years housing, stipend and freedom to shape feig, and is doing his curacy in the Cathedral. This is really imaginative use of cathedral resources. Feig are shortly going to be using the cathedral coffee shop for some kind of connecting point with the local community. Should be good - will be interesting to see how this develops.
