One of the problems in being church is that we think we need to be all-embracing. Of course, the church is for everyone - that is one of the wonderful things about it. However, if every congregation tries to do everything, most of us will end up in unsustainable situations. For most congregations a bit of targeting is a good idea.
At last week's Church Growth Conference, John Daniel suggested three things that might provide us with a good approach.
In the first place, 'do something different'. Secondly, 'do something you enjoy'. And thirdly, 'don't try to do everything'. All three pointers are well worth considering.
