Church and Context (the final frontier)

3. How does your Church Contextualize the Gospel

If you’ve been reading over the last 2 day’s I’ve been sharing some notes from John Stevens’ helpful lecture on Contextualization and Church Planting from WEST.

But knowing this stuff is one thing. Thinking it through and applying it to the church you’re in/planting is another.

So with that in mind, here are just 3 questions that can help us to make the most of our contextualization (remember we all contextualize whether we realise it or not!).

  1. How does your church seek to contextualize the Gospel?
  2. Who is attracted to your church? (What is it that attracts them?)
  3. Who is alienated by your church? (What is it that alienates them?)
