Church growth is not about the maintenance or survival of an institution.
Rather, it is about being obedient to the call of God to his people to share the Good News of Jesus Christ, inviting people to become Christians, to grow in their discipleship, to belong to the church and take responsibility for the church’s worship, mission and ministry. Church growth cannot simply be the aim – it is what happens when we apply ourselves to the core vocation I have just described.
This diocese is embracing the urgent need for church growth. We are keen to pull together resources of people and materials in order to help our parishes look to how they might grow. This website is a welcome and creative contribution to this.
