About a year ago I went to a day conference on church growth, here in Chelmsford diocese, by Bob Jackson, Archdeacon of Lichfield. Now Andy Griffiths, my Rural Dean here in Chelmsford South deanery, has posted a link to an online copy (PDF) of Jackson’s notes from a similar talk. The first part of this is serious and excellent material on church growth. The latter part, the slides “some hints for getting rid of congregations” (pp. 17-21) and the spoof church noticeboards (pp. 22-26), are hilarious!
