As a student, I joined a group of young people who moved to Coventry to work for a summer doing outreach. Most days we worked door to door witnessing but on the weekends we ran a folk club to witness to young people. There were 8 of us and we joined with a number from the Coventry church in the outreach program.

The 8 of us found accommodation together in a house in Leamington Spa that a generous family gave us. In ‘our’ house the 8 of us initially found it just great to live together but soon frictions arose and I recall us all meeting one day to sort out our mutual problems and work out some agreed house rules.

On the Friday evening we began by prayer, then we began reading from the book ‘Desire of Ages’ the events of the passion week. When we got to the Upper room we stopped and washed each others feet, then ate bread and wine while we read together the chapters about the events of the Upper Room.

It was a simple service but that night around the Lord’s table – something happened – we became family!
