" . . .Can we begin to think seriously about ‘low-maintenance’ churches? Also, is this possibly one of the things that ‘emerging church’ is about? We are simply being crushed by the weight of the structures we have created in order to maintain our church life. People find they cannot take the weight and are slipping out to look for something which meets their spiritual needs and to which they can contribute something, but which does not weigh on them so heavily."
Jonathan Ingleby shares a postscript on the debate on emerging church in a worthy PDF from Redcliff which also has some good essays, including Jonny Bakers "Baby or Bathwater? Must we ditch traditional church structures to do mission well? A perspective from the Emerging Church in the UK"
