Lyrics

A house has different rooms,
we go through many doors;
the church is like a house
and all its space is ours.

The church is like a home,
a roof to shelter all:
together or apart,
from toddlers to the tall.

We’re here in Jesus’ name,
who said that he would be
among us in the crowd
or met as two or three.

Author / Composer Comments

RK: This is one of four short hymn texts written by Fred during the course of 1987 while he served at Central (Ecumenical) Church in Swindon, England. They are intended to be used at the time in worship services when younger people are about to ‘leave’ to go to their own groups or classes. The other three selections from this set are Although We Go Our Separate Ways, Before We Came to Church, and Upstairs? Downstairs?.
