Publisher's Description

For anyone who is concerned about Church decline, the contents of this book offer an essential blueprint for building God’s whole community in the coming years. This unique set of resources offers practical help and insight for all who want to grow, enrich and develop their congregational life.

The Church of Scotland has drawn on the findings of extensive new research that it has commissioned in order to put together this set of carefully crafted and informed resources aimed at helping every congregation to understand why people leave the Church, how to avoid unnecessary departures and, above all, to develop an enriching, vital Christian fellowship with the large numbers of Churchless Christians in every community across the country.

This ground-breaking book, illustrated by Dave Walker, offers information, hope, insight, prayerful reflection and practical ideas for bringing together in fellowship all Christians, whether they are members of an institutional Church or not.

Editorial Reviews

Here is a book dealing with one of the most significant issues of our time. While undergirded by rigorous academic research, it is eminently accessible and will be of deep interest to all who are interested in the changing nature of society, as well as the changing face of the church. In every chapter it aims to secure the reader’s practical engagement. At once hopeful and challenging, this is a major contribution to reflection on the place of the church in contemporary society. I wish it a wide readership.
Dr Steve Aisthorpe offers an original, insightful and authoritative voice on making visible and audible the invisible church of churchless Christians. His insights need to be taken seriously to understand God’s presence and activity in today’s world.
