Who grows the church?

I wish I had written this blog. It should be compulsory reading for every invitation committee.

It’s asking a minister to make bricks without straw to grow the church without changing anything.

One thought on “Who grows the church?

  1. As this blogger recognises…..It is God and God alone who gives the increase, but that increase comes at the heels of some intentional planting, watering, and tending on the part of the entire community of faith.
    I hadn’t realised that Liturgy really means ‘the work of the people’. In which case Trinity must be a Liturgical church. Never thought of it that way.
    I guess we recognise the need for effective leadership though. We see that in our lay leadership team. May they be supported by such a person.
