Ev 63 Turnaround Teams: A Tale of Two Churches in the Missionary Diocese of Wakefield

The 'Turnaround Team' is an innovative response to the challenge of struggling churches that are facing an interregnum. With lay members drawn from other local churches, it turns a potential problem into an opportunity for new life and growth.

This booklet describes how the idea of 'Turnaround Teams' came into existence, how it has worked out in two pilot parishes, and the lessons to be learnt. Without offering a blueprint for success, it highlights some important lessons in turning parishes round—team building, shared vision and growing mutual trust in the face of change.
