Janet Tredrea, our Cornwall regional coordinator, brought this to my attention and you might also find it interesting: a blog page in which Jonathan Creber from near Truro is trying to work out more about messy discipleship. You can find it here if you scroll down to his entry for 21 December.
He asks: does anyone have personal experience of, or know of examples where Messy Church is moving on to overtake its parent churches in the discipleship steeplechase? Look forward to hearing from you.
So do get in touch with Jon if you’ve got any experience, though I wouldn’t like to think we’re in any sort of competition against our parent churches: cooperation to get everyone over the hurdles safely might be a fairer image!
