This workshop will present information about “Fresh Expressions” which is a movement that is cultivating new forms of church alongside existing congregations in order to reach a changing world.  At its heart, Fresh Expressions is about empowering and equipping God’s people to develop creative expressions of church that can reach the increasing diversity of our society.

A working definition of a Fresh Expression of church is “A form of church for our changing culture, established primarily for the benefit of people who are not yet members of any church.  It will come into being through principles of listening, service, contextual mission and making disciples.  It will have the potential to become a mature expression of church shaped by the Gospel and the enduring marks of the church and for its cultural context.”

Participants will have the chance to:

  • Hear how Fresh Expression sis renewing the church.
  • Talk about the development of Fresh Expressions US
  • Learn more about the Mission-Shaped Church.
  • Discover tools to start Fresh Expressions in your area.
