A report by the US-based Leadership Network reported by Religion News Service suggests that “The vast majority of multisite churches are growing … and they are seeing more involvement from lay people and newcomers after they open an additional location.”
The Uniting Church is no stranger to the multisite model, with both regional and city-based churches forming clusters where mulitple congregations share a leadership team. Other churches, such as NewLife Uniting on the Gold Coast are expanding by opening an additional campus.
