I'm still off blogging for Lent, honest, just a brief interruption to commend the new Evidence to Action website. It's a set of resources for the main themes identified by the CofE's research into church growth 'From Anecdote to Evidence', to help churches reflect on how they rate on each factor, and then to identify what to do about it. It won't do the work for you, but it's a cracking site, not too cluttered, and very very helpful.
It would have saved me a lot of work as Deanery Missioner to have had something like this to point people to, but I'm glad it's there now!
Drat, have to restart the 40 days now.
