Fresh Expressions

Changing Church for a Changing World

Fresh Expressions are new forms of church for a fast changing world. The initiative has resulted in hundreds of new congregations being formed alongside more traditional churches across the country. These new initiatives are intended to be for people who currently have little or no connection with Church. National research suggests that Fresh Expressions of Church are one of the most effective ways of reaching those who have never been to church in our increasingly secular culture.
