P151 Growing the Church Through a Spiritual Winter: Pathways Through Paradox (2017)


The metaphor of winter offers a rich matrix for understanding the age of decline currently experienced by many churches, denominations, religious communities and networks. 

This at-times unsettling yet hope-filled booklet proposes that the present time of loss is not only a necessary part of preparing the church for future growth, but also a reflection of Christ’s own dying and rising again, to new life.
