Whilst many gospel churches grow through a wise, faithful and creative missional mindset, the reality is that a number of churches experience numerical decline for a number of varying reasons. The gospel heart remains, but the strength and vitality to carry out that work has diminished over the years.
We want to help such churches re-capture gospel vision and re-structure their work according to the new opportunities that have arisen in their communities.
Much positive work has been done in the past by our Church Restoration Team, and we’re very thankful to all those who have been involved in the work. As we plan for the future we recognise the need to think carefully and creatively about how we advise and work alongside churches that need revitalising.

Through Ministry Introductions we provide a unique meeting point for Independent churches seeking new gospel workers and for individuals seeking a new sphere of ministry.
Our National Support team is made up of experienced pastors from across the country. The team works alongside Richard Underwood in strategic areas of Pastoral support.
Proverbs 27v17 can sometimes be overused, but it still remains true: “As iron sharpens iron, so one person sharpens another.” We see an immense wealth of gifts and experiences amongst those who minister in our churches. If we can connect these people in meaningful ways – for support, inspiration and training – then our churches will greatly benefit. But how can we do that effectively?
Through our Pastors’ Network we seek to commend individuals so that churches can be assured of their character and gifting.
We believe that women have been given all sorts of ministry gifts, and that our churches are poorer if these gifts are not developed and used.
The Lord Jesus loves local churches irrespective of their size. However, smaller churches can be vulnerable and stand in need of particular love and care.
