Unlocking more growth

experience and the welcome. Some were quite
emotional. Will they continue to attend? We will

since moving to area a year ago finally made the
effort

years ago, and came because a neighbour invited
them. They were pleased, and asked their
neighbour if they can come back.

The Anglican bishops were in mixed company
outside Union Station, as half a dozen young
women in kilted dresses handed out birthday cards
for Alexander Keith's in a beer promotion. At
least one passerby briefly thought the two groups
were together before having the confusion sorted
out. However, the Anglican Church and Alexander
Keith's do share one thing those who like it,
like it a lot. National Post on Canada.com

  • Are we still learning?
  • We all need confidence to learn. Too much
    confidence we know it all.
  • Too little confidence we think we cannot learn

Are we still learning?

The Mystery Worship Family the brave Church
Leader
18
I am sharing their experiences (with their
permission) as long as my Parish and Church are
not identified as the 'generator' of their
perceptions.
19
The reasons people dont come back a second time
20
What a beautiful church - its a shame the
service did not come up to the buildings
standards. Nothing has changed - its just like
Church when I used to go with my Gran.
21
The congregation don't like Children - there
were 3 little girls in church with their parents
and it was obvious from the turning around and
tutting that some of the congregation did not
approve that they were there. The Vicar
blessed the new hymn books and people around us
were tutting and muttering disapproval at the new
books.
22
The Choir were so old I thought they would need
resuscitating.  When they process into the Church
the way they look sets the tone - its a church
for old people. I thought singing and music was
to enhance the worship, music was slow, singing -
did anyone know the hymns?  It didn't sound as if
they did - we ended up laughing at the music and
singing!
23
The Sermon - what was that about? - theology?
 - it did nothing for me (or us) the Vicar lost
us after 3 mins and it went on for over
15mins!!!! The lady on the door was nice, and
checked up on us during the Peace - but no one
else talked to us except the Vicar when we were
leaving.
24
There is a children's area but its for babies,
there is nothing suitable for a wide age range of
children such as our son. If I wanted some
motivation to become an Atheist attending this
church was it!

At number 6 Were not ready for that

At number 5 Were doing alright without it
37
At number 4 Weve tried it once before
38
At number 3 It costs too much
39
At number 2 Thats not our responsibility
40
At number one It just wont work
41
The Antidote Behold He is doing a new thing We
can do all things through Christ who strengthens
us We need to be about our Fathers business We
will reap a harvest if we do not give up Our
needs are supplied by God according to the riches
of His grace We are Gods ambassadors We are more
than conquerors through Christ

Shizuka Arakawa 20,000 times falling down Why
would anyone endure that.. Because she did not
interpret falling down as failure, it was not
merely a means of improving, but evidence that
she was improving and opportunity to learn
develop and adapt
48
To Lament is impatient insistent protest It
takes courage to pray in this way Not to lament
leads to our present situation Resignation,
passivity, blind acceptance, numbness
49
Are you a church into feedback or failure?
50
Feedback the Rocket fuel which propels the
acquisition of knowledge Tennis-net Golf-out of
bounds Aspiring sportsmen and women are keen to
work with top coaches
51
Back to what? From Simon to Simon Peter
52
Christianity Today its more about knowing about
God than knowing God lowering the standard of
Christianity

64
For a few weeks live as if its really true. Pray
as if God is really listening, read the bible as
if God is trying to speak to you through it, meet
with other Christians as if when they gather, God
is really present among them. And live not only
as if you yourself loved by God live as if
everyone you meet each day as well

  • Belief System
  • If you accept a belief, You reap a thought. If
    you sow a thought, You reap an attitude. If you
    sow an attitude, You reap an action. If you sow
    an action, You reap a habit. If you sow a
    habit, You reap a character. If you sow a
    character, You reap a destiny.
  • This poem shows the progress from our experiences
    leading to a belief and ultimately to our destiny

Greeted welcomed with a smile Directed simply
and politely shown where they need to go
Treated shown respect, and happily surprised
with comfort food/drink. If you feed them they
will come. I knew of one fast growing church that
served donuts and coffee every week. Now there is
a church growth strategy you can sink your teeth
into! Seated led to a comfortable, appropriate
seat
