Small Church, Big God


Book Description

Most Christians are not in massive churches with celebrity pastors and TV ministries. The overwhelming majority of believers experience church in villages and towns where the gatherings are much smaller, the passion no less real and the Gospel no less effective. “Small Church, Big God” colourfully chronicles and celebrates these unsung heroes in one small Lincolnshire town.

We are used to hearing testimonies from individuals but seldom hear testimonies of the journey of a local church. This story is powerful as it traces God’s faithfulness towards a community of people over a significant period of time.
– Stuart Bell
Leader, Ground Level Team, Lincolnshire

“Small Church, Big God” tells the story of a church, facing the challenges of bringing the Kingdom of God to rural Lincolnshire, through endless kindness, miraculous intervention and some godly stickability!
– Jarrod Cooper
Author, songwriter, broadcaster. Revive Church, Hull.

This story is one of faithfulness and fruitfulness. It’s a clear account of the secret of success – “keep turning up!”
– Chris Bowater

A book about the faithfulness of God and a book to encourage all who labour for the Kingdom.
– Paul Mcguigan
Former Pastor of Gainsborough New Life Church.

Many a leadership team will find hard-earned wisdom and encouragement in these pages. You will walk with them in their joys and struggles and realise that God uses very ordinary people to do extraordinary things.
– Alan Hoare
Pastor, author, counsellor. Kirton New Life Community Church/Lincoln Alive.
