Welcome to emerging-church. On this site you'll find some resources which may be useful to people exploring new ways of doing church.  Perhaps the most helpful will be the video resources,.

Video Church

Another way is to gradually develop this site into a useful resource for those who would like to use video in their church life. It is an non-negotiable fact that we are now in the 21st century and that more and more of us, churched and unchurched, get the majority of information, education and stimulation from electronic media. If the church is to continue to be relevant to the lives of the majority of people it must have a major focus on enabling and equipping ordinary parishes and congregations to use video and other multimedia resources in worship, preaching and evangelism.


How to be Church in the 21st Century is a course on how to do curch in contemporary Western culture. The course book can be found here. It contains sections on contemporary culture; the spirituality of people who don't go to church; doing mission in the 21st century; preaching in the 21st century; studying the Bible in the 21st century; worshipping in the 21st century; and a final chapter on new forms of church, especially emerging church and new monasticisim.


There has been a huge amount of writing about emerging church, fresh expressions, postmodern church and so on. I've read quite a bit of it and in this bibliography I've listed the books I've read and made brief notes on them; mainly for myself but they might help others too. I've also included links (mainly to amazon.co.uk) to the sources of everything in the bibliography.
