I'm afraid to admit, but I'm one of those really annoying people who get to make a loud noise on a sunday morning - ringing church bells. Every Sunday morning. So I last had a lie in on a sunday in about 1984. (OK slight exageration, but it feels like it sometimes, especially the morning after the night before)

Here's the rota for a really keen day: LSR, Church, Roast dinner, busy afternoon in the garden.

More normally it's long run on Saturday, lie in Sunday, Church, Dinner, garden, Car DIY, etc, then take child 1 to swimming and fit in a 9 mile run at pace. Then tea and bed.

Church? As in Charlotte? Or do you mean the old buildings which are tourist attractions? Why would i go and look at a church on a sunday, as opposed to any other day, especially when do my lsr on sunday afternoons?

Church LSR and Possibly Church again in the evening.

Mrs BD is leading the service this morning, and I have some singing to do.

Church is the people. Not the building.

well said big david

we go sporadically, and it is because of sporty stuff getting in the way - the kids as well as us

Usually Church 07:15 - 13:45, or thereabouts. So LSR on Saturday.

Except today on holiday - just an LSR and about to walk round the harbour with the family.

A chat with God as I admire His handiwork all around me during my LSR and thank Him for the health to be out there.

Running is my church.

Time to chill with a glass of red and the forum.

The service this morning went well. Mrs BD was filling in for a visiting minister who was unable to visit.
She was able to use much of a service that she had done a few weeks before as a guest (lay)preacher.

I was called on to sing and lead the congregation in a song that I had written.
Because I had written it as a singer, the tune does not have too wide a range of notes, and is easy to sing. Something which the congregation apreciated.

I say written, but I have not got the tune down adequately for anyone to provide accompanyment.
However One of our organists has offered to write down the tune if I sing it for him.

The rest of the day?
LSR a little over 12miles
A bit of food prep and a doze.
Out to the evening service. Again this should have been the visiting preacher, but another stand in had to do the biz. Which they did, including asking some questions that was not ready to answer.
Home to finish the cooking and eat the meal:
Roast beef.
Potato, Sweet Potato and Beetroot, boiled and baked a bit.
Onion Sweet Chillies, Mushrooms, in olive oil and beef juice.
With apricot and oats bake served with custard.

I'm a musician and singer myself so that time covers setting up, sound check, 3 services and packing up after.

Sundays for me are church 0.730 - 11.30, then again 17.30 - 19.30 (but then I am the priest!).

We're normally there from 10.00 to 12.30 - but then there is the socialising and cuppa afterwards.  Over the summer there is no evening service - it's more of a youth based one but we go too with our kids.  MrGFB is a drummer in the band so when he's playing he's there from 8am and then stipping down the drumkit usually takes until around 1ish.  If I'm on the tea rota I'd be there early too.

The LSR would normally start around 1ish - the only thing that changes is the longer the LSR the higher the chance of eating out for Sunday lunch!!

Easy choice. I'm agnostic, therefore LSR

11/08/2009 at 10:35

Is that the Communion wine you're quaffing there Sass ??

We have our own chapel. So we hold the services when we like.....

You mean people go to church other than weddings and funerals

I do my lsr on a Saturday on Sunday I go to my special church and usually fall out of the door about 6pm and get a kebab

Course they do Nicko, there are Christenings too. Although I can't remember the last one of those I went to.
