For those of you who don’t know what “Fresh Expressions” are, they are the way in which the Church of England and the Methodist Church have joined forces to proliferate the emerging church movement within their respective denominations. Since the publication of Mission Shaped Church Fresh Expressions have been part of what Dr Rowan Williams described as the “mixed economy church” in which both the traditional and the innovative would be valued.
The most recent mailing from Fresh Expressions states that they have been given further backing to continue the project beyond the initial five years and into another five years. Yay!!
