CHURCH REVITALISATION PROJECT
The Church Revitalisation Project is a multi-year pathway to help local churches grow.
Since launching in 2016, 60 churches have started the process.
Churches started Church Revitalisation
WHO IS IT FOR?
The Church Revitalization Project can help:
Congregations lacking younger members
Congregations lacking leaders
Since launching in 2016, 60 churches have been through the process.
The Church Revitalisation Project uses Revelation ch2-3 as its inspiration. Six reasons why revitalisation is great.
Grows us in our love for Jesus
Builds on the past
Often establishes a multi-generational congregation
Empowers forgotten believers
Values marginalised communities
Uncovers hidden gospel frontiers
WHAT WILL YOU LEARN?
The pathway involves an advisor working with you for an initial 2-3 years.
Where required the pathway can involve a part-funded worker to develop the growth of churches.
When elderly leaders struggle with challenges and change, this project aims to listen.
WHAT PEOPLE ARE SAYING
Since we launched the project, we have been privileged to work with a number of churches and to watch them grow and develop. Some people only think about “revitalisation” when it’s too late and they have already become too small and weak to be revitalised. They require resuscitation or resurrection! We have improved the booklet because we think it’s better to encourage churches to engage with the project at an earlier stage. We want to speak to them when they have problems but can still see a way through them. When addressed through our Church Health Checks and mentoring inputs, that church can begin a whole new journey of revitalisation.
Giles Arnold, Chief Executive at CGT and Chairman of the Revitalisation Operations Team
“For us, it is not so much about starting new things, as building a team for the future, futureproofing our church against what was a dwindling and ageing congregation. Without the clarity that a health check brings, the mentoring and, in HIC’s case, the hands-on support from the project, our future would not be looking so positive.”
Mark Davies is an Elder at one of Church Growth Trust’s properties, Highgate International Church (HIC) London, and the Regional Training Director for GLO, one of Counties’ partners on this project.
