Antony Barraclough walks us through the details of his church’s merger, the ups and downs, resulting gospel growth and what he wishes he’d known before he started. Drawn from the book ‘Better Together’ (Tomberlin and Bird). If you’d like to talk with Scott and Peter about a church merger consultation, reach out to us at reachaustralia.com.au/contact-us.
