God's Tent Pitched Among Us: A New Pattern for Rural Church Mission (Paperback)
As the church focuses more and more on growth in urban areas, this book shows how small rural parishes can respond with confidence to the opportunities and challenges for mission and ministry, and that flourishing exists throughout the church, and particularly in small and rural contexts.
God's Tent Pitched Among Us provides a worked example of a thriving rural mission project in Northumberland. It is a handbook for those who would like to develop their own expression of God's Tent, providing practical encouragement and easy-to-follow outline sessions. It also offers an extended reflection on the powerful image of the tent-pitching God in the book of Exodus and who biblical writers continue to draw on through the book of Revelation, and more notably in the prologue to John's Gospel.
