I am a member of a "house church", for want of a better term (we're searching for it!). We are inspired by Shane Claiborne and the Simple Way.
Are you involved in some form of intentional community or community of intention?
We have aspects of "new monasticism" in our church. It's all really quite informal but we are searching for new direction, or more to the point, are feeling God calling us into a more radical direction. We're not sure how this is going to look, and in fact have a weekend away as a group in a few weeks to talk and pray over these very thikngs. Terms like "community", and "oh gosh, I think Jesus is going to upset our apple cart" can be regularly heard. Interestingly, the individual that started the community left as an ordained Anglican minister left church employment to follow this vision.
Are you involved in some form of emerging or fresh expression of church?
Think I talked about this across the previous two paragraphs
