reNew is a video-based learning resource to help us think through Bible principles and practical steps towards revitalisation. Simon Ladd has had over 35 years of experience in church leadership, serving in a variety of local churches in SE England. Drawing on both his own experience and that of those with whom he has served, reNew is a tool that can help you, as a leader, think through the regrowth possibilities in your local church.
The course has an introduction and then 5 main sessions:-
1, Get real
3. Mystery Shopper
4. What is a church?
5. Vision, Strategy and Mission.
Watching the Introduction will give you a good idea of what it is all about, but the best way to use this resource is to do it together as an eldership or leadership team. The course is set out on the following six pages, such that you can use one page per session.
A suggested time frame would be over a six week period, allowing at least a week to reflect on the matters raised in each session. The videos range from 8 minutes to 16 minutes but allowing time for reflection and discussion, we would advise spending a couple of hours on each session to get the most out of it.
You could also do this together with a Revitalisation Advisor, who may be one of our Partnership Regional coordinators or someone else connected to the Revitalisation Project.
