Based on work done with smaller UK Baptist churches, this is a really encouraging, practical book that would help any smaller church think through the challenges and opportunities that they face. It is encouraging because it emphasises that there are advantages about being small that you can use for the benefit of the Gospel, as you engage in mission and care for those around you. It is practical because it gives manageable suggestions to everyday problems. Written in a straightforward style, it has lots of stories based on real life church situations.
