New world, new church? Our world and our lives have changed radically in the last twenty years, but has the church adapted to this change? Do we need a changed church for a changing world? Are new forms of church really possible? If so, how can they be developed?
The aim of this course is to explore the ‘why’ of creating fresh expressions of church rather than the ‘how’. The six week course takes us on a journey looking at the ever-changing nature of our social communities and why the church needs to rethink its approach to those communities in meaningful and relevant ways.
The course is designed to present those changes in an informative and interactive way, and is suitable for both clergy and lay alike. The ninety minute to two hours sessions are delivered through verbal presentation, powerpoints, movie clips and stories with group participation.
