Mixed-economy Mission: collaborative ministry for multi-church growth.

Andrew Dunlop, Anna Brooker

    Research output: Book/ReportBook


    In contexts marked by deprivation and decline, how can dioceses or deaneries turn around the prevailing narrative that churches do not grow? This case study examines how a creative reimagining of church organization, local collaboration and vision has led to regrowth and missional vigour in formerly worn out and isolated congregations. It argues that a mixed-economy approach to ministry can nurture diverse and healthy ecosystems, as traditional forms of church are pruned and revitalized, and new expressions take root and grow.
