What does St Martin’s mean to you? Why is it so special for you? Can you sum it up with a brief comment, illustrate it with a short story, give a hint of what being part of St Martin’s has done to strengthen your faith, or change the way you see the world?
The Stories Group, led by Charles Woodd and Ali Lyon, has been commissioned by the PCC to cherish and collect through a variety of media the diverse stories and perspectives of the extraordinary range of people in the St Martin-in-the-Fields community, present and past, in order to enrich our community’s sense of itself and enhance our wider mission. As part of this, we want to be in the position in the next few months to present a picture, a ‘mosaic’, of the people of St Martin’s on our website, by collecting as many contributions as possible from people right across the St Martin’s community. We know we are a wonderful mixture of all kinds of people, with many different approaches to life and faith – let’s share that with the world.
If you are part of St Martin’s, then you belong in the ‘mosaic’. So why not have a go? You don’t have to be clever, you just have to be YOU!
You can tell your story in a variety of ways:
- You can be filmed, somewhere that you feel comfortable and appropriate – in the crypt, in the church, outside;
- Your voice can be recorded, and this can be accompanied by a series of still photos of you around the site, or just by a picture of St Martin’s if your prefer;
- You can use your real name, or remain anonymous as you wish;
- You could even write something, which could be put up as text.
Members of the Stories Group will be available to film, record and/or photograph you after the 10.00am Eucharist on the following Sundays. Look out for us in the Lightwell:
Sundays 29 September, 20 and 27 October.
If these times don’t suit or you want to discuss this further, contact Charles Woodd or Ali Lyon via the Parish Office (or call us on 020 7766 1100).
