Being Congregational

The booklet is based on earlier material largely written by Richard Pickering and Janet Wootton.

Being CongregationalIt begins with a look at the nature of a Congregational Church. Why is this model of church important to us? What do we offer to the wider ecumenical fellowship, that other models of church do not, or at least not to the same degree? What are the values and principles we seek to put into practice?

For Congregationalists, the church is:

  • Christ-centred
  • Spirit-filled
  • Worshipful
  • Inclusive
  • Missional
  • Well managed and cared for
