“Unbinding the Church: Missional Realities and Better Options”

This 93-page booklet gives a full explanation of the Unbounded Church concept, and includes an analysis of reasons for falling church attendance and the now decades long lack of missional success.

It specifically uses the large Sydney Anglican Diocese as a case study but the issues and proposed ways forward are highly relevant to the wider church of all denominations. The specific and urgent need for change is emphasised.

A particular concern is the need to release the New Testament legitimated principles for Christian Community in order to facilitate more fruitful mission in postmodern western cultures and appropriate approaches to mission.

Something Completely Different: The Mixed Economy Option

The general subject of this booklet is the Missional Malaise that now infects the whole Australian church landscape. The specific subject is the Anglican Diocese of Sydney, arguably still the strongest part of the Australian non- Catholic Church. However, while the specific focus is Sydney, the issues and challenges faced, and the causes of those challenge are common to the Australian church as a whole.

Other denominations and independent churches can substitute their own growth, attendance and regional population statistics in order to draw their own conclusions, which in any case are likely to be very similar. The discussion in Section 3 is useful for diagnosing some of the major causes of the Missional Malaise in any section of the church.

The Missional Community Network proposal in Section 4 is a potential way forward for any local church of any denomination or none.
