The Western world may be dotted with churches, but congregations are sparse and frequently dying. All too many communities lack a viable Christian presence. It is time to plant mission-shaped churches.

The evidence is clear: those who plant churches define the Church's future shape. In America in 1800 Baptists and Methodists were fringe groups. By 1900 they were the mainstream. To plant churches must be a key part of any mission strategy.

What, then, are the key principles? What experience is relevant? How does the church planter get support, build a team, select a location, instil a vision? Will the resulting church be healthy enough to reproduce itself within five years? Once it is planted, how do you build a church that will last?

New churches are impacting communities across the West, and Martin Robinson draws upon dozens of varied examples to illustrate his case.

The Rev. Dr Martin Robinson is a freelance consultant to Christian organisations and church groups, and a minister in the Churches of Christ. He lives in Solihull, UK.

Martin Robinson

Dr Martin Robinson is the National Director of Together in Mission. In his early 20s Martin trained for the ministry and his first church was inner city Birmingham. That muti-ethnic congregation engaged in church planting and Martin together with his wife Lynda went to lead one of those church plants. After 13 years in local ministry, Martin went to work for the Bible Society in a variety of roles. In his role as Director of Mission and Theology and since, Martin has written many books on the broad theme of mission, including Faith of the Unbeliever, Thinking Clearly: Why The Cross?; Invading Secular Space; Winning Hearts, Changing Minds and most recent with Paul Griffiths The 8 Secrets Of Happiness. In 2002 Martin joined Together in Mission as the National Director.
