Church unplugged: Remodelling the church without losing your soul
David Male, who pioneered the Net in Huddersfield has written an engaging, honest and practical book telling the story and drawing out some of the lessons. It's a great read and highly commended.
Our new journal launches this month. It's loaded with good stories about mission in traditional churches and fresh expressions. A copy will be sent to all circuit superintendents and rural deans. You can order copies for your own leadership team from the website free of charge or download the entire journal. Watch out for the Archbishop of Canterbury's piece on the nature of the church: crystal clear and immensely powerful. (http://www.freshexpressions.org.uk/mixedeconomy)
