Leading a Multicultural Church
Malcolm Patten has been a Baptist Minister for over twenty years and this book combines his congregational sociological research and his years of experience as a Pastor in multicultural churches. He will also be interviewing others who are involved in working with multicultural churches across the denominations (Anglican, Methodist, URC) as well as drawing in expertise from BME networks, the Evangelical Alliance, Churches Together and Independent churches with multicultural congregations such as Kensington Temple, Westminster Chapel and Emmanuel Church, Westminster.
A timely contribution to understanding how a pluralistic society is impacting the church . . . an extremely valuable resource for any pastor.
A must have for all ministers in urban and multicultural Britain. It is also a book that every student of the ministry in our day and age must read at least once before they take their first pastorate. It is worth every recommendation it gets.
Not only [is it] an important tool in equipping leaders, but also a source of inspiration that will reinvigorate them with the wonder of this complex and yet exciting ministry.
‘written with passion and a wealth of personal experience’.
