This essay presents an account of the theological ideas that led to the formation of apostolic networks in Britain in the 1970s. It takes note of the function of theology as a driver of ecclesiastical innovation and offers the thesis that, while theology provides ideas and arguments, society is the receptacle into which these ideas are poured. Consequently, similar ideas are expressed in different social forms as society changes. The essay comments upon changes within apostolic networks in the last fifteen years, notes the appearance of metanetworks, and highlights the emergence of networks within denominational settings.
