This practical guide will help you identify your church's strengths and weaknesses, discovering what action to take to improve its health.
Focusing on the quality of your church's life rather than just the numbers attending, and avoiding 'quick-fix' solutions, Robert Warren offers a realistic and positive process for revitalizing your church, helping you assess your parish against the seven marks of a healthy church.
The goal is nothing less than encountering the reality of God's presence in and through the life of your church. The material is fully road-tested and has been used in local churches across the UK and beyond.
'The materials here are amazingly adaptable. In the Rochester Diocese, the majority of congregations have begun to be touched by these ideas. The process helps them to ask searching questions about their current life, which, if acted upon, will equip them to become lively churches for their wider neighbourhoods in the years to come.' -- Carol Kitchener (Parish Development Officer) and Michael Howard (Bishop's Officer for Mission), Diocese of Rochester
