From every tribe and tongue

This is the view looking towards the front of St Bride's Worship Centre. I love the wooden roof and the amount of light which enters the room. The music group lead sung worship from the slightly raised platform, while the main service leader and speaker take the chairs to either side of the communion table.

Notice the languages on the altar cloth. For a while, the local Korean community used our building for their services on a Sunday afternoon. I forget whether the other language is Urdu or Arabic, but it reflects the commitment of the church to working with the local Asian population; predominantly Muslim, and it's not unusual for one or more of the worship songs within a service to be sung in Urdu. As a visitor, it can be interesting trying to get your tongue round some of the trickier pronunciations :), but an English translation is always provided.
