Appreciating Church is a resource to help churches and their communities explore the organisational and personal development approach Appreciative Inquiry (AI).

There are stories and experiences of AI in action, ranging from asking a different question in the church meeting to delivering a major project; ideas and examples of AI; small group tasks and practical methods; suggested worship materials to support the process; and signposts to further reading.
