Overview

Jon Oliver was involved in mission to the club scene long before anyone thought up the term 'mission-shaped'. Here he reflects on the kind of mission that everyone is now talking about - the church going out to where people are, in this case to the clubs and city streets in the early hours, when most churches would be locked up.

Part One: looks at the changing face of mission among young people, asks whether clubbing has a spiritual dimension and makes the case for mission and evangelism in places that are about as far removed from most people's idea of church as you can get. Part Two: tells some great stories from the front line by others working in mission to the club culture, e.g: Turning a typical parish church into a 'Church for the Night' - a spiritual oasis for dehydrated clubbers, bottled water and pastoral care, how to be a Christian and a clubber or DJ, engaging with young people who have no contact with the church,and more.

Editorial Reviews

Clem Jackson
'Anyone who believes the church needs to connect with people "where they are at" should read this book. Oliver takes you into the world of "Clubbers' Church", telling the story of his work as a Night Club chaplain in Bournemouth, interspersed with other inspiring stories ... Read it - and be prepared for God to speak to you through it.'
