We are developing a range of resources to help parishes across our diocese as we multiply congregations. Our diocese is unique so we’ll develop some resources ‘on the ground’, sharing good ideas from across the diocese. There’s also a wealth of valuable tools, principles, ideas and material being developed across the national and global church so we’ll link to those too. If you have a relevant resource to share or recommend, please let us know.
One of the most pressing needs for some types of new congregation is the need for lots of creative, inter-active worship resources. As a start, we’ve gathered hundreds of those created by Zone2, the All-Age Café-Style congregation at Liverpool Cathedral. Many of them are easily adapted to other types of congregation. Over time we’ll be add other types of worship resource, for example for young adults or asylum seekers.
Listed below are a number of other useful links both within our diocese and elsewhere. We’ve grouped them into Mission, Discipleship, Leadership and Worship, which are the four elements of a congregation outlined on What is a Congregation?
