‘How Village Churches Thrive’ provides practical advice for those who work or worship in a village church. It features case studies for Info Point.
With a foreword from comedian Hugh Dennis (whose father was a bishop in Leeds), How Village Churches Thrive from Church House Publishing is an invaluable resource for parochial church council (PCC) members and church staff. Packed with real-life examples, the handbook addresses ten core themes at the heart of church life. It is designed to address some key areas where applying relatively small changes can make a big difference. It includes two featured Info Point case studies in the ‘Celebrating our heritage’ chapter:
All of the books contributors are active in supporting the growth of rural churches through their roles in the Church of England or through organisations such as the Arthur Rank Centre, the Churches Conservation Trust, Caring for God’s Acre and Praxis.
“The authors address the demanding issues presented by declining numbers, financial challenges, ancient buildings and media stereotypes – and come up smiling (though sometimes, you suspect, through their tears). It would not be difficult to dismiss their analyses and suggestions as simply naive – were it not for the case studies that accompany each section. These people are not anybody’s fools…Who knew about Info Point (‘a standalone device that broadcasts a standard wireless signal compatible with the private smartphones and tablets of visitors’)? I didn’t! But they’re all here, and much more.”Canon Dr John Rees, the former registrar for the Diocese of Oxford
