Usually simple church is another name for home/house church. But I want to expand the definition to mean smaller (under 150 or so - but not excluding home churches) communities that have a minimum of organizational systems, see buildings as optional, are relatively flat in structure and at the same time are rooted in Anglican ethos.
For a definition of missional see my posts on Introducing the Missional Church.
How about creating an open source exchange of ideas on my blog about simple and missional Anglican church planting?
- What does simple/missional/Anglican look like?
- How is it like church growth movement based Anglican church planting and how is it different?
- Does churchmanship (i.e., high, low, evangelical, anglo-catholic, etc.) effect the ability to be simple and missional? Why or why not?
- What is necessary for a simple/missional church to still be meaningfully Anglican?
