Church membership

We recently decided to tie together church membership with home group attendance. We are trying really hard not to create hoops for people to jump through. But what we do understand is that home groups are the key places where we live authentic Chrisitan fellowship and where we can serve those who are our brothers and sisters.

Of course this has not met with everyones approval - but we were prepared for that and we will continue to move forward with this becuase we think it is the most effective way to produce devoted followers of Jesus. As leaders that is our aim - names on a database is pretty meaningless.

What do you think?

Wow, that's really interesting. It will definately challenge people's perception of what Church is (well at least it would in our church, probally would not go down so well though). Let me know how it goes.

By the way have you read/heard of "Total Church" by Tim Chester and Steve Timmis
