One of the goals of Project Reconnect was to help small congregations gain independence. The local congregation conducting worship is a first step toward independence. However there is little point training up one person in a congregation so everyone is dependent on that one person. Practically and theologically we are no further ahead by training one individual. Our goal is that everyone who attends worship can participate and contribute if they are willing. It might be that they control the DVD player (the under 10 years olds are best at this but we found a few 80 years olds who got pretty handy at it too!). It might be reading the Bible readings or taking up the offering. We also discovered among our congregations some pretty handy discussion leaders - who themselves didn't realise they had this gift.
PROJECT RECONNECT TURNS CONGREGATION MEMBERS FROM RECIPIENTS INTO CONTRIBUTORS.
