A lively and thought-provoking book on the churches initiative on the year 2000 interspersed with practical help and ideas to help the Church face up to a new era.
Boring, out-of-date and irrelevant? Or do churches have a place in the new Millennium?
On 2nd January 2000 the Queen will be attending church as part of a nationwide initiative to encourage people to give church a chance at the start of the new millennium. Thousands of local churches will open their doors and make a manifesto commitment which will include the following:
The place will be warm
Your children will be looked after
The sermon will be relevant
You won’t be made to look stupid
The service will be intelligible
There will be good coffee afterwards
You will be given a chance to think about God
This book will prepare for this initiative and the Archbishop of Canterbury George Carey, and Archbishop of Westminster Cardinal Basil Hume will both contribute practical ideas and ways for churches to implement The Churches Manifesto for a New Millennium.
Everything a church will need, from whatever tradition or denomination, to be ready for the big day. Advice, tips, check lists and addresses will be included along with lots of encouragement and support.
