Their latest post, 10 principles which could transform your church practices – permanently is well worth checking out, as it summarises some of the ‘big ideas’ they have been learning and blogging about.
The pick of the ten?
It is best you read the post for yourself, but here as an appetiser is my pick of the ten principles.
One leader, many teachers, no professors
Stop performing, start empowering
Get people talking – unlock them early
Discovery is the best teacher
Whole body learning (head, heart & hands)
There are lots more goodies in the text and the other five principles. Recommended, not just for reading but for doing.
Trouble is ….
The trouble is, many of these ideas (certainly not all) are more difficult in large church congregations. That’s just one more argument for smaller churches.
But if we are in a larger congregation, that shouldn’t stop us doing what we can (if we are leaders) and asking for change (if we are not). And modelling these principles where we can.
Watch this space for some more blogs on changing the church from the bottom up (coming soon).
