Can Messy Church nurture people’s faith and make converts into disciples?
Messy Church has been widely and enthusiastically adopted as a proven and effective way of introducing families to an experience of Christian community and the good news of Jesus. Sceptics ask, ‘Are people becoming Christians through Messy Church?’ The evidence is clear that they are. But the next challenging question is, ‘Can Messy Church also nurture their faith and make these converts into disciples?’
The aim of this book, by telling stories, analysing the journey to faith and reflecting on what being a disciple means and the various methods of making disciples found in scripture and church tradition, is to encourage ministers and lay leaders to see how their Messy Church can be an intentional disciple-making community.
