Christianity Magazine Book of the Year.
It is an honest, inspiring testimony to the truth that the Gospel of Jesus still maintains its life-changing power and God's people still have it in them to change the world.
St Andrew's Chorleywood has been at the forefront of church renewal for over three decades. In the last five years, it has seen substantial growth as the congregation has moved from drawing people to one place, to a model in which well over a thousand believers have been sent out in mission-shaped communities of up to 50 members, meeting in school halls, community centres, coffee shops and other contexts.
This daring move has resulted in the raising up of over a hundred new leaders, a massive release of spiritual gifts, great vision and creativity in outreach, and major growth through evangelism.
