Trends and possibilities for Australian churches
These are times of change and opportunity for Australian churches, and this book offers both challenges and possibilities for the century ahead.
Build My Church takes a closer look at patterns of growth and decline in Anglican and Protestant churches in Australia. Based on the findings from the 1996 church life survey and the 1998 Australian Community Survey, it clearly outlines the challenges emerging for all denominations. Build My Church takes us forward by suggesting 10 research based principles which leaders and attenders can focus on to help them build a positive future.
