Church Growth Research
Three years of important church growth research was published and shared at a conference in January 2014.
One piece of evidence as a taster. Did you know that for every person sent to start a Fresh Expression of Church, three years later there were 2.6 people?
A summary of the main findings can be located at http://www.churchgrowthresearch.org.uk/report .
More detail can be gleaned from the slides that were presented at the conference, at http://www.churchgrowthresearch.org.uk/firchurchgrowth .
There is plenty more valuable detail on the site, which is continuosly being added to. Have a look around.
My guess is that this research will be shaping much of our agenda for years to come.
