A trendy internet café for surfers in north Cornwall, a skate park in Essex, a tower block in Portsmouth, a gathering of Goths in Cambridge, a Wetherspoon’s pub in Bridlington and a fishing boat in the North Sea. Is this your idea of church? Possibly not, but each is a valid “fresh expression of church” that has sprung up in the past five years.
This statement has made a mark in my mind since visiting Polzeath a very nice retreat or seaside resort in North Conrwall. We had a lovely afternoon visiting one of the favourite places of our host Miss Mona who acted as our tour guide. Bless her heart!
Polzeath is a nice example of how little seaside towns of Cornwall can be so refreshing and ideal for a quiet retreat.
