The Well, an open space?

I have been thinking about The Well, just like everyone else from West Auckland Community Church (WACC) and maybe the community of West Auckland as well, excuse the pun.

'The Well, an open space'
West Auckland, Co Durham
The Well is a project from WACC which is more than just a building; a space used to operate the ministries that God is calling us to. Throughout the church we have used the word empty canvas, a shop front with windows and an open door leading into an empty space waiting for our Creator to reveal though His people the picture. I believe He has done that already, but it's a matter for all the strands to come together, not by us, but by the Grace of God.

For me, the excitement is waiting to see how God will use this place. From my past experiences in a relatively short time as a follower of Christ, whatever that is, our minds will be blown away! I can't help thinking about it being a meeting place for all generations and all backgrounds, where you walk in as you are. A friend told me about a bench very close to The Well, which estate agents would describe as, "having access to all major routes." Where people of a 'certain' generation, depending on the time of the day, meet and pass their time away together. Whatever God has planned for The Well, it will certainly be a  place to pass the time, where relaxing, refreshing and renewal will be a part of this space. A demonstration of God's Kingdom.

We wait to see...

More information about The Well is available at the WACC website.
