"It is rare that a fresh expression of Church matures to the point that it gives birth to another one, let alone that happening several times over. This set of young churches share the Sorted DNA yet each one is distinctly itself. Church Army Evangelist, Andy Milne, has done the wider Church a great service by reflecting perceptively on what has worked, what is transferable and what is contextual. All this comes without hype, but with clarity and credibility. The book rightly covers both the missional and ecclesial aspects of the art of growing young churches. It deserves to become a standard text for pioneers and planters of all kinds of fresh expression of Church ââ¬" not just those working with youth."
ââ¬ÅThis is a brilliant book! Sorted Church has changed the lives of hundreds of young people and this book tells the story of how Andy pioneered this project. What makes this book special is that Andy shares his experience, his learning and his wisdom so that other people can plant youth churches in their local areas. I dare you to read this book and then have a go at pioneering something new..."
"Any advice from someone who has done it is always worth listening to. Andy does a great job in both telling the story of Sorted but also helping other people to think about how you start something new. His experience and wisdom is worth listening to and hopefully acting upon."
ââ¬Ëas part of Sortedââ¬s oversight group for a number of years I have seen the challenges it has faced and its considerable achievements at first had. As a researcher and trainer in contextual mission and fresh expressions I have learnt much from the way Sorted has enabled young people with no church connection to become disciples of Christ and create their own Christian community. I believe there are many lessons here for others who want see Christian communities emerge among those beyond the normal reach of the church, and not just for young people either.ââ¬
