Thanks Neil - we do need more people who can help us reflect on why most Baptist Churches tend to hit a numerical ceiling (cf how few grow beyond 250). I did some work on this 20 years ago, but it needs some up to date reflection. The general response feels like 'large is automatically non-relational', or 'Baptist Churches shouldn't be large because everyone can't be involved in everything' and usually hidden behind claims (false in my view) about Baptist identity!
