What kind of Church?
A year ago, the Evangelical Alliance in Scotland produced a document to provoke Christians in the nation to think and discuss what kind of nation we should be working for. The response was overwhelming and we were invited by both churches and politicians to discuss the future of the nation.
We were challenged to write a similar document about what kind of church we need. It was felt by some that while it is great to work and pray for a just and merciful nation, the question that should have come first was whether the Church in Britain is fit for purpose. In a time of rapid secularisation and declining church attendance we need to be discussing the Church. This is our attempt to begin that discussion.
