Scotland has had its Referendum, the die has been cast and normality has been restored. Or has it? Is a new normal appearing?

Jesus repeatedly challenged ‘business-as-usual’ and the status quo. His words and actions - often starkly - called into question the assumptions, prejudices and complacencies of his society. He set out an alternative, perhaps even an abnormal narrative: that of the upside-down kingdom.

In Holy City’s 2014-15 ’Normal Service’, we’ll be questioning some of the accepted norms of our land, and of the world today. We’ll be looking at aspects such as community, health, money, media, language, environment, status, imagination and power.

How do we move beyond our own experience and self-interest towards a collaborative and compassionate commonweal? How can we translate good and faithful intentions into meaningful actions which have real and lasting consequences? And will we allow the truth to set us free? Or are we comfortable and content with resumed normal service?

Each Holy City evening consists of participative, reflective activities and liturgy engaging body, mind and spirit.

Holy City is a monthly event, a rendezvous of faithful folk, curious enquirers and compelling doubters, drawn from the whole, glorious spectrum of Christian tradition, its edges and beyond. All are welcome, irrespective of practice or preference.

Holy City is organised by the Wild Goose Resource Group of the Iona Community - John L. Bell, Jo Love and Graham Maule - and a fine and motley crew of citizens - the immaculate Holy City Planning Group, and in collaboration with Renfield St Stephens Church & The Iona Community.
Holy City is most generously hosted by the congregation and minister (Peter Gardner) of Renfield St Stephen's Centre in their Centre. We are deeply grateful for their long-standing support and hospitality. Nor should we forget those other stars and starlettes from RSS, our seductively lovely Tea Team: Sheila, Helen, Graham, Fiona & Alec.
