Looking for a new church

What to look for in a new Church?

Everything on this earth changes. TV Shows end, The Doctor regenerates, and pizza gets eaten. On a similar note, you may not stay at your church forever. One day, you may well find yourself looking for a different church to worship at.

The reasons why you’re looking for a new church may vary, perhaps there were theological differences about the arrangement of the chairs? Maybe you were put off by the new lady preacher? Or maybe… you either just fancy a change / ‘called’ to a different church / moved to a different area.

Whatever your reason, here are 10 things to look out for in a new Church:

  1. Does the Church meet at a reasonable time on a Sunday morning?
  2. Obviously your new church must be exactly like the Church in Ephesians Chapter 4.
  3. Make sure the preacher agrees with your understanding of the Bible.
  4. Ensure the worship music is YOUR style of music.
  5. Is it a mature Church?
  6. Does this church have the correct understanding of the work of the Holy Spirit and how that work is manifested?
  7. Is the truth spoken by people “in love”?
  8. Is the coffee drinkable?
  9. The minister is someone who is charismatic, sensitive, clever, musically gifted, open to questions, a natural charismatic, time for everyone, always smiling, and driving the growth of the church.
  10. Remember. Looking for a church exactly the same as your old church is ridiculous. No one can clone that many people at an affordable price. Yet.

Any other ideas?

Christian Voice v Tom Daley

Hey Christian Voice,

What was the point of this tweet about Tom Daley?

Please, if you’re going to present as anti gay please try and present a reasonable argument. Present it as an emotional or theological argument if you must, but this, this doesn’t work.

After all, being gay didn’t stop the success he has had in the sporting world.

You cant blame a sportsman for having a bad day on him being gay…

Actually you just did.
