The Lion is the Lamb
“Come to me all you who are weary and burdened and I will give you rest”, says the Lord; the kind of rest that allows us to stand firm, press on follow where He leads. What does resilient ministry look like? What does it take to be rooted in Christ so that we can stretch and serve the God who delights to invite us to co-labour with Him for the Kingdom

The Unstuck Church
Is your church growing? Diminishing? Is it somewhere in between? In Tony Morgan's book, The Unstuck Church: Equipping Churches to Experience Sustained Health, he identified the seven stages of a church's lifecycle that range from the hopeful and optimistic days of launch, to the stagnating last stages of life support. In this talk, Tony unpacks the lifecycle of a typical church, identify characteristics of each phase, and provide practical next steps a church can take to move towards sustained health.
