In recent years I have onen visited Top Church, Dudley, as plans have come together to make it a Resourcing Church.
Meetings have taken place in a back room, as the main worship area is huge and hard to heat.
When I have been involved in Sunday services, the tiny congregation have been dwarfed by the cavernous building which they have struggled so faithfully to maintain.
It was a delightful experience therefore to walk into the church one recent Sunday to be greeted with well over a hundred people of all ages, ethnic backgrounds and church traditions gathered to hear the recently appointed Resourcing Church Leader, the Revd James Treasure, outline the church's unfolding vision.
There was a real buzz!
