Building Multicultural Congregations

We can recommend the following resources to build your church:
  1. Research that will guide the planting and development of effective multicultural congregations

  2. The development of resources to encourage culturally diverse worship

  • PPFinalLogoPentecost People resource, launched at Assembly 2017 was developed by members of the Racial Justice Group and Regent’s Park College.  This study resource for small groups aims to help churches to embrace the different cultures within them, to learn hospitality in a new way and to experience multicultural worship and prayer.  It is made up of four video-based study sessions filmed in British Baptist churches, and additional resources to help people to explore the areas of Hospitable Church, Hearing Every Voice, The Global Church and  Dreaming the Dream. 
  1. The development of resources that encourage congregations to welcome the stranger, including asylum seekers and refugees

  2. The development of resources to assist understanding of, and engagement with, the diversity of Christian churches throughout the world

  3. The development of multicultural theological resources to equip churches in their journey

    • The Racial Justice Group commissioned a new resource on Multiethnic Church which has been written by Malcolm Patten as a six week course for small groups to help develop healthy, integrated churches.  It can be downloaded free of charge from our Resources Library.
