An amazing community arts venue
The Rec House is a great venue right in the heart of Twerton dedicated to the arts. It has a fantasitcly versatile ‘Live Room’ available for bands, dance sessions, theatre workshops, live music, art displays and so much more. With a well equipped kitchen, delightful garden and recording studio upstairs it is an wonderful place for people to offer themselves to others in order to help them grow, develop and to express themselves. Recently refurbished to high level the centre is well kept and refreshingly bright and inviting. Once a cold and musty space the new centre has been freshened up with new equipment, new floors, new ligthing, a new colour scheme and a new vibe. It is a venue for people to get together in, to share life with others, to practice, to experiment… a place to be with others, laughing and smiling.
An energetic agent of change
Set up by people connected with St Michael’s church next door, the Rec House is not only a venue. We want the Rec House to be an agent of transformation and change here in Twerton – an active and vibrant group of people that want to make a tangible impact on the community and on the lives of individuals. Creativity, music, art, dance, drama are some of the most powerful tools that we humans have for reviewing our lives, changing the ways we see things and living differently. Creativity joins us together and empowers us. Creativity heals us. Creativity helps us express ourselves. Creativity stretches us and challenges us. Creativity makes us different. That is why it matters and why it is so good that we have a community of creative people to work together for the sake of the locality.
A new kind of Christian Community
Lastly, the Rec House is a new kind of Christian community – a group of people centred on Jesus who simply want to make a difference in the area and serve others by engaging in the creative arts. Dependent on the Spirit and shaped by the life of Jesus this community aims to be outward looking, or missional in its focus. Recognising that life comes from a restored relationship with God and neighbour through faith in Jesus it is our hope that as this community shares life together it will displays a quality of life that attracts others, not just to the centre, but to explore the deepest meanings of life and community with us.
