Building for the Gospel
An updated edition for 2020 of this handbook for the visionary and the terrified – Our gospel is eternal, our buildings just a means to an end. So why do we need to own buildings? Why not hire a cinema, or a school hall for Sunday services? Many new churches do this, and it can work very well in the early stages. But is it a good long-term solution? Should we spend money on bricks and mortar, when the church is about people? Can’t we make do with what we’ve got? Isn’t it better for money go to mission instead? This book will help those who have an inkling of dissatisfaction about the facilities or capacity in their church, and show them the way forward. It aims to help churches already launching into building projects, encourage those who are holding back, and give ideas to churches not yet thinking about possibilities.
