Singing the Lord’s Song in a Strange Land?

A Missiological Interpretation of the Ely Pastorate Churches, Cardiff


Peter Cruchley-Jones

Singing the Lord’s Song in a Strange Land? explores the experiences and insights of three congregations living on a large deprived housing estate in Ely, Cardiff, UK where the author is a minister. From their experiences of decline and loss, discovery and hope the author has developed a thesis rooted in the Old Testament paradigm of exile and offers a challenging critique of the Church’s self-centred nature and formulates the beginnings of a missiology in and for a «post-Church» society. A missiology that questions if the Church truly has a fixed and pre-eminent role in the mission of God.
