Hubs & Connections

Fresh Expressions operates as a ‘all channel network.’

What this means is that rather than looking to centralise information and organisation, our aim is give power and voice to everyone involved in the movement.  We want movement and momentum to be happening everywhere.  Sometimes we won’t know everything thats happening in the movement but thats ok because to us that’s a sign of life and vitality.  Its a sign our network works.

To help this process along we have a number of Hubs and Connections designed to connect you to people who are doing similar things to you or are working in similar spaces or networks.  Here’s what we have to offer you.


We have a network across the country which seeks to champion, support and share the work of Fresh Expressions.
