Mr John Wallace, MA, MSc, MA
I am a mature (very) postgrad student on the DThM course at St John’s College, Durham. My area of interest is church planting from the catholic end of the C of E, rather than the more prevalent HTB model. I am linking this for comparison purposes with new churches built in the Victorian era as a result of the Oxford Movement.
My interest comes from 2 directions. First, my own liberal catholic parish planted a new church in a housing development area and secondly, the 'Growth Agenda' literature urges churches of other traditions than evangelical / charismatic to take planiting seriously. It also fits well with the Diocesan (St Albans) vision of spiritual and numerical growth. I am Chair of the House of Laity so very much involved in the developement of diocesan policy..
