fx Charity & Structure

We believe that God’s missionary Holy Spirit is at work in the world and is inviting us to be discerning as we join with that work and adventure.

The fx movement is served by a number of different entities that work together; the charity, Fresh Expressions Ltd, with it’s board, the leadership community and contractors.

The leadership community listens to the fx movement and communicates vision and strategy to the fx board who then make decisions about funding, governance and deployment of the fx Operations Team.
