Thoughts on churches not having a church building?
I've been to London and Paris this February and I noticed that a significant number of (new) churches don't meet in church buildings per se. Many meet in movie theaters, conference rooms, and the like.
I can imagine how expensive it must be to purchase a building in London and Paris, and I understand renting a place just for the Sunday morning service. While I admit it's not the scenario I'm used with, I'm not explicitly against it.
How do you guys feel about that? I imagine that there is plenty of space available in most of the US, but Europe is a bit more compact and that makes it hard to find a dedicated space for a church. Especially if it's a small church, with not that many events during the week. I assume this might be an issue that churches in big US cities (NYC, DC, or something like that) face.
I'm not implying it is wrong for a church to not have a dedicated bulding. I just wanted to hear your thoughts.
