The Filling Station is a national movement offering an informal way of expressing the Christian faith in a rural setting. Using local mid-week monthly gatherings in unusual venues, many people find the Filling Station a vital part of their Christian life. This is not a new church denomination, rather a group of Christians who are celebrating their faith in God in an informal and authentic fashion.
"It gives Christians living in remote rural areas spiritual refreshment and the encouragement that comes from gathering together in larger gatherings" said Bishop Mark.
There are now five Filling Stations running in Shropshire, the others being based south of the River Severn in Hereford Diocese around Bridgnorth, Craven Arms, Clun Valley and Leebotwood.
