About this title:
Specifically performed from a perspective of the Church of England, this study notes that the Church of England concentrates its congregational training in one kind group-based format called ?process evangelism,? however such a format neglects more experiential and less directive kinds of group work, which may more effectively educate church members in Christian belonging. Surmising that a more experimental approach to group work might usefully be adopted, this study compares three different group formats?one directive and two experiential?on a longitudinal basis. Using interpretative phenomenological analysis, the principal themes emerging from members? self-reports of the different structures reveal four value constructs that play a dominant role in each of the three groups, but with respective prominences and potential enrichments. The practical significance of this for Christian group work?and for religious education in general?is also considered, arriving at a strategy for congregational training applicable to the church as a whole.
