I am an atheist of vaguely Christian background: I am baptised, but have not been confirmed nor ever received communion. I attended a notionally denominational school that was in practice almost entirely secular. I go to Christian church services and write up my uninformed and 'unspoiled' impressions. By 'unspoiled' I mean that I don't research the form of a service before attending, and if there is a point of doctrine or practice that I don't understand, I don't look it up before posting my review.

I got the idea for this blog from a casual perusal of a collection of Joseph Leech's Churchgoer articles for the Bristol Times, which newspaper he also founded and edited. You can find out more about Leech, pioneer of the 'mystery worshipper' column, here (scroll down if you're not interested in his country pile). Except that I am an Irishman of Protestant stock and more than the middle height, with a decent head of hair for my age, I have nothing in common with Leech.
