boxing resources

Great idea from Resource Centre for Uniting Church Synod of Western Australia. They take a range of resources and place a number of copies of each in a plastic box and loan them to churches for a month or so. Simply effective really!

This was the fresh expressions box, and the messy church box was on loan.

It got me thinking about the “boxes” I need in my office. The “small churches in mission”; the “exploring across diverse cultures”; the “everyday spirituality”; the “mind, body, spirit faith.” …..

  1. Steve, when you’ve made the “small churches in mission box”, can I please have a look?

  2. Sure. I’ve been asked to do a sort of “small churches” consultation last week, so it’s got me thinking and chewing. My first church experience was starting Graceway, my wife and I, and being there for 9 years, so I have some first-hand experience.

    I remember picking up a book on small churches and it talked about needing to be 50 folk and it was like “I wish!”
