Publisher's Description

The Church of England is its parishes-for clergy & lay people alike, Christianity is lived out in the context of a parish with a community, congregation, building and a priest. This immensely useful resource reflects on many aspects of parish ministry: pastoral care, liturgy, art and the sacred space, spirituality, youth, regeneration, and the multicultural parish, and more.

A vital guide for students, clergy and lay church leaders, it was conceived in response to 'Anglicanism: the answer to Modernity'(Continuum), a book by academics giving an ivory-tower view. This is intended as a real help for the real work of running a parish and to enable theological reflection at local level.

Editorial Reviews

'This is a book which will encourage all those involved in parish life. The essays in the book challenge those who argue that the parish system is no longer fitted to twenty first century life.'
'The Parish is a timely, stimulating and, above all, encouraging account of urban parish ministry by practionners who clearly believe in it, enjoy it, and are good at it. It's warmly recommended'
-- The Rev Philip Welsh
Church Times
'The importance of these essays is that they are written from the front line of ministry. (...) In their various insights the authors offer ideas for other parish clergy and to the laity who in the final analysis are at the heart of the parish.'
'The writing springs out of theological reflection on years of committed ministry in challenging parishes. It's a good read!'
