Fresh Expressions 

Fresh Expressions 6102.pngThe Spirit is always moving to sweep the Church into a new mission age. With openness and gratitude, we await the leading of the Spirit in ways not yet seen as God continues to work God’s purpose out in our own day in a new way.”

A Fresh Expression is a form of church for our changing culture, established primarily for the benefit of those who are not yet part of any church. 

Fresh Expressions is an international movement of missionary disciples cultivating new kinds of church alongside existing congregations to more effectively engage our growing post- Christian society.

We equip Christians to start these expressions of church among the many segments, neighborhoods, and people groups of society.

Around the world, Christians are stepping out in faith and beginning Fresh Expressions of church, new or different forms of church for a changing culture. Each Fresh Expression of church is unique, and designed for their context.

There is biker church, cowboy church, church for artists, church at or after work; the sky’s the limit. Each is an adventure in bringing the power of the Gospel to people.

What sets Fresh Expressions apart is a focus on forming faith communities especially for those who have never been involved in church (un-churched) or who have left the church (de-churched).
