What Makes A Good Church?

The people at Busted say that the 20 and 30 something crowd consistently tell them that the hallmarks of a great parish mix these elements:

  • Mystery: young adults long for a sense of the contemplative in ritual.
  • Hospitality: young adults want to feel welcomed in their spiritual home.
  • Relevant Preaching: messages that resonate with their everyday experiences.
  • Joyful Singable Music: music that they like to both listen to and sing along with.
