This set of Training Notes picks up on current interest in reviews of church culture. They explain what church culture is and how it is impacted by the church’s values.

This is then illustrated from two paintings seen 20 years ago at a church. These illustrate ‘relationships’. One red picture includes wording for a range of warm, positive relationship terms and these are all listed. The other blue picture includes a range of terms which feel cold and bitter.

These are then used for a list of questions and suggested actions for both personal use and to discuss in a group your church’s values and then the culture that comes from these.

The Training Notes conclude with a summary of TN25, The radical values that Jesus taught, as taken from St Matthew’s Gospel.
