Church Revitalisation as a Network or Denominational Strategy

Description

Europe is in desperate need of re-evangelisation. Whilst it is hugely encouraging that there are many new church plants and church planting movements across the continent, there are also many small churches that are declining and dying. If some of these churches were able to be revitalized so as to become thriving and growing gospel churches this could have a huge impact. This talk considers the particular contribution that denominations and church networks can make to church revitalisation, drawing on the experience of the FIEC, a network of 6000 gospel churches in the UK. It considers how denominations and networks can catalyse a vision for revitalisation and coordinate resources and expertise so as to ensure the maximum effectiveness.
