Church overview statment Visions is an alternative worship group linked to St Michael's. We are multi-sensory and informal, using video, slides, incense and DJ'd music in a safe, intimate, candlelit, comfortable venue with beanbags and chairs. The Bible informs our services, but we don't do long sermons, preferring other teaching methods. We are passionate about justice but completely orthodox in theology.(Think Taize meets the Iona Community meets Greenbelt at the Ministry of Sound).
