A Toolbox for Small Churches

VIBE 5 Web image.png

A Toolbox for Small Churches takes a number of aspects of church life, earths them in Scripture, gives real life examples from around the UK of how they are applied in practice, and provides tool to use in small churches today.

In spite of the regular research that suggests that healthy smaller churches are often more effective in reaching not-yet Christians, there is a great misconception that these smaller communities of faith are not really that important. For those who are daily living in the reality of the smaller church, this resource will certainly provide you with lots of practical encouragement and tools to assist you in your ministry and mission. For those who have not shared in this experience of being church, reading this might help you to understand and appreciate the valuable contribution many smaller churches are making.
