4) How to Nurture a Faith-Sharing Culture – This new book from James Lawrence and CPAS looks brilliant: “What if evangelism was a ministry of the whole church, not just a few? What if it was central to the life of a church rather than something done on the margins? What if it was part of the ‘way we do things round here’?” That’s the aim of this resource, a straightforward guide to nurturing a faith-sharing culture in your church, congregation, fresh expression or church plant. And CPAS have 3000 free copies to give away if you’re the leader of an Anglican church, Fresh Expression or church plant in the UK or Ireland. Register above.
