A Churchless Faith?

A Churchless Faith?

The fastest growing category of Christians in the West is thought to be the dechurched – those who have given up on church, BUT not given up on God. This is opposite of “Sunday Assembly”, which is for people who have (mainly) discounted belief in God BUT benefit from practices more often found in church. So we have two modern phenomena – churchless faith and faithless church.

  • Location: Billingham Forum, The Causeway, TS23 2LX
