Buildings Diagram

Parish with No Church Building DiagramSometimes a new housing estate is built without a church building. In every area, there will probably be a small group of keen Christians who would like to meet and worship together in their local area. A house of faith is an ideal solution for this church plant situation. According to research, when a church closes half of its attendees go to another church of the same denomination, a quarter go to a church of another denomination and the rest leave the church altogether and go nowhere. Thus, when a church closes, only half of its members affiliate with another congregation of the same denomination. Establishing one or a series of houses of faith can provide a developing spiritual presence in that area with an umbilical chord link to the same denomination church elsewhere.
