The plans for the front of All Saints Church in the city have caused an in­ter­est­ing re­ac­tion.

We could all ar­gue for days about what the best look for the church is - whether that’s keep­ing the style classic and true to its her­itage, or adding mod­ern ad­di­tions to cre­ate what par­ish leader Nigel Dixon de­scribed as ’’a lit­tle bit out there’’.

But what’s most in­ter­est­ing to me is see­ing the amount of peo­ple in the com­mu­nity who are speak­ing up and ex­press­ing their opin­ion about how our city looks, and how they want it to look in the fu­ture.

The re­ac­tion on Neigh­bourly and Face­book has been huge with peo­ple pitch­ing in from both sides of the ar­gu­ment. Even peo­ple on the street have been happy to have their say on the plans.

While some may be los­ing their faith in the church, I have gained faith that peo­ple in our com­mu­nity care about our city’s fu­ture.

And to me that seems more im­por­tant.
