Champagne, gossip and decadence

So here is a not very good photo of Europe's longest champagne bar which is at the new St Pancras station - the Eurostar trains pull up alongside and the the seats in the booths are heated. How do I know that? Well I spent four hours in the bar gossiping and catching up with a colleague from the United Reformed Church on the night before I went back to Paris. And you need those underseat heaters, some of the waitresses were wearing gloves and it wasn't only because the champagne is chilled! Despite the decadent setting we nevertheless talked quite a lot about theology - well that's my story and I'm sticking to it.
