Pray-per planes!

I am convinced that all St John's churches are more than a little bonkers (and I mean that in a good way).

Take today's service - it all started innocently enough, with a collection of traditional-but-modern songs and a sermon from this week's guest preacher (our vicar being on sabbatical). Then Laura stood up to lead the prayers and announced that we were going to do something a little bit different... and make paper planes!

Basically you scribble a few things that you'd like prayer for on a sheet of paper, and then turn the sheet into a paper ("pray-per") aeroplane. Then everyone all throws their planes (gently!) at each other. Collect a plane that someone's lobbed in your direction, and pray for whatever's written on it. Simples!
