P 162 Leaving Church: What Can We Learn from Those Who Are Done with Church? (2020)


Growing numbers of Christians profess to being ‘done with’ attending church. What are their reasons for doing so, and what can churches learn from it?

This study explores the experiences of Christians who have ceased regular church attendance, revealing stories of spiritual seekers looking for authentic expressions of faith away from traditional forms of church. It asks uncomfortable questions for those who remain, including whether this could be a movement provoked by God.
