In Nottingham, House of Pain wrestlers found themselves without a venue. As a result of going on the Partnership for Missional Church journey, St Ann's offered their hall.
As churchwarden Kevin says, "Partnership for Missional Church challenges us to wrestle with our ideals of how to reach the community. It's ironic that from that we now have wrestling in the church."
"I believe Partnership for Missional Church has allowed this church to loosen up, to be more free-spirited," says Densel Davy, lay minister at St Ann with Emmanuel, Nottingham.
"This is about a cultural change in the heart of the congregation," says the Rev Phil Marsh of St Wilfrid's, Wilford, on the other side of Nottingham. St Wilfrid's has also been on the PMC journey.
