Transforming lives on four continents

Church (issue 4/10)

"Christians gather in all kinds of ways and places, and yet each can express community. For me, 'churchless Christianity' is an oxymoron, something that is self-contradictory. Church cannot be solitary." (David Kerrigan, BMS general director)

This issue of Mission Catalyst is themed 'Mission: without church?'

Main feature articles look at:

  • Postmodern churches
  • Inner-city churches
  • Church growth
  • The increase in popularity of cathedrals
  • Surfers' church
