Assessing Contemporary Forms of Church?

I was asked to lecture Masters students at Kings College London for two days on contemporary ecclesiology.  Yesterday was the first day and with the second to come in early December.

I took yesterday in two parts.  The first was mapping emerging and contemporary forms of transatlantic church from their practices, and looking at the theological, contextual and social theory contours within that.

The second part was a more focused theological, historical and social theory critique and interrogation of that mapping.

Then in December we come back and use those tools to examine a) new church/house church b) fresh expressions c) mega churches and d) post-church movements.

My syllabus outline, slides and other materials are all available for download here.  I’ll put the materials for December online once I get to that teaching.
