Apostolic or New Churches came into existence in the UK as a result of a complicated set of historical and theological factors in the 1960s. By the mid-1970s these new churches, with their restorationist doctrines, were beginning to set trends within the wider evangelical scene and by the 1980s they had formed apostolic networks which functioned in some respects like conventional Pentecostal denominations and, in other respects, quite differently from them. In respect of the dynamics of church growth, as this empirical study shows, they appear to be similar.
