Building A New Church Alongside The Old


Are some of our churches simply a memorial to a bygone age? In his hard-hitting but compassionate style, Martin Down pleads with the church not to put tradition before its missions to reach the lost and to be willing to change in order to become relevant.

A critique of current church structures. Martin Down claims that the parish system is geared to maintenance and that it hinders mission. He writes from a conservative charismatic and modernist perspective and draws from his own experiences in Fountain of Life and from others such as Carpenter’s Arms in Deal, Oak Tree Fellowship in Acton and Norwich Community Church. He also argues that maintenance churches need pastoral leadership while missionary churches need apostolic leadership. Martin believes that the traditional parish church will not change-one strategy is to leave it; another is to build a new church alongside the old.
