People leave churches all the time. They may do so gradually or suddenly, they may do so thoughtfully or on a whim, and they may do so with godliness or with great unholiness; but the reality is that people do leave. And it has a considerable impact on the Christian communities of which we're a part. Yet despite this, it's not something many of us think about very often.
In this short booklet Simon Flinders takes a look at what church is, why you'd leave (and why you wouldn't), and how to leave well - the aim being to think God's thoughts after him, hopefully well in advance of any decision you might be contemplating, and with a little bit of objective distance from the frustration and confusion and emotional turmoil often associated with the act of leaving a church.
