"I define connection as the energy that exists between people when they feel seen, heard, and valued; when they can give and receive without judgement; and when they derive strength and sustenance from the relationship."
Fresh Expressions is a movement that works on connections. Pioneering is an incredible privilege but it can also be very lonely at times which is why community and connection is such an important part of the work of Fresh Expressions. We are a movement of practitioners, everyone involved has started or run Fresh Expressions so we know what it’s like.
There are a variety of different ways to connect; from online discussion groups, hubs for different contexts as well as our gatherings and training events.
FX Associates are the core of the movement. They’re a growing community of hundreds of Fresh Expressions practitioners across the UK who are passionate about equipping, encouraging and championing fellow pioneers and Fresh Expressions. If you’re currently involved in a Fresh Expression and looking for your tribe then come and join us!
Hubs are groups of pioneers and practitioners across the UK who gather together with regional or contextual connections. They’re a great space where like-minded pioneers can connect, share stories and support each other.
Fresh Expressions works alongside a large number of Christian organisations, denominations and streams, both in the UK and overseas.
Fresh Expressions began in the UK, but it’s now a growing worldwide movement. Check out the different nations pioneering new contextual forms of church, maybe your country is next?
