Are Church Buildings Needed?
Thoughts on the largest church building opening in Europe
Does Europe need more physical church buildings?

In this brilliant episode (my opinion I’m aware!), I delve into the topic of physical church buildings and their pivotal role in communities. Joined by my friends, Matt Harrison and Dan Bellshaw, we embark on a road trip to Norwich UK to witness the opening of Soul Church’s new facility, helmed by Jon and Chantelle Norman…lots to chat about!

EPISODE 2 follows this one! (Where we discuss our thoughts after we had spent all day there!)
