Congregational Living – A SenseMaker® Pulse


SKU: BreakTheBias-3months-3 Categories: , ,


How can places of worship thrive? Exploring congregational growth and vitality.

Throughout history religious buildings have been the epicentre of the community; connecting, educating, inspiring, and influencing the social, communal and political landscape. But in the modern day, the impact of the church has radically changed, with congregational numbers in rapid decline and even certain denominations predicted to fade into non-existence within the next 30 years.
This bespoke SenseMaker® framework has been artisanally designed to help understand the complex reasons behind congregational decline. Exploring key constructs such as attitude, motivation, social equity, identity, what success means, and future-thinking, this framework will help illuminate voices from the community, congregations and clergy to better understand what is going right, what is going wrong, and highlight possible avenues for change.
