Beating the Bounds

Where are the boundaries of the Church, and what do they look like?  In this issue we take a walk around the 'edges' of the Church.  Who is 'in'? Who prefers to be 'out'?  We consider how the Church can appear from its borders and ask how it can best relate to those exploring the possibility of faith, to those in the wider world, and to those who already live within the boundaries of another faith tradition.
