Renewing a Congregation through Church-Planting Thinking

Date recorded: 27 Sep 2018 | Speaker: Martin Robinson | Event: ELF Church Revitalisation Network


Renewing a church is very different from planting a new church. Some would say it's easier to begin a new congregation that to renew an existing one. However, existing churches have a history, a potentially helpful reputation in a given community and a spiritual heritage that can be valuable. The core principles of renewing a church and beginning a new church have a great deal of similarity. What can we learn from church planting to help our revitalisation efforts? What might we be missing? We'll discuss such issues as leadership, building a team, the fundamentals of congregational life, and context as we consider how to bring new life to an existing congregation.​
