Re-pitching the Tent is a handbook that aims to revitalise the way we regard church buildings, enabling us to see them afresh as a vital component of our worship and mission.

Richard Giles

Richard Giles is best known for his pioneering work in creating worship that is truly transformative and life-changing and has written numerous bestselling books on that theme. Formerly the Dean of Philadelphia and now retired from parish ministry, he lives near Newcastle.

"If you are concerned about how the church building aids and abets the mission of the church, and if you are considering any form of reordering this is essential reading. Giles writes in an engaging, witty and thought provoking way (...) History and theology are combined with practical wisdom and insight that will give fresh heart and courage to those who wish to engage in a re-ordering that goes beyond minor tinkering and aims to release the church building for worship and mission in new and exciting ways." Mark Bonney, Canon Treasurer, Salisbury Cathedral, PRAXIS NEWS OF WORSHIP, Autumn 2004.

"Repitching the Tent needs to be on the required reading list of every seminary in North America, regardless ot denomination. It is a seminal work for the Church of the 21st century. (...) Richard Giles writes with a sharp, acerbic wit which sometimes elicits a belly laugh, sometimes a profound "aha", and sometimes catches the reader up short about an assumption or misperception. The author challenges, inspires, and motivates us to reach and stretch for excellence in living as the Church of this century in and around buildings of the last several centuries." Marion Jenkins, Coordinator of Henry Budd College for Ministry in The Pas, Manitoba and Secretary of Liturgy Canada. Liturgy Canada, volume II, Issue 2, Easter 2006.
