What is a Fresh Expression?

“Fresh Expressions are new forms of church that emerge within contemporary culture and engage primarily with those who don’t ‘go to church”

Mission Shaped Church Report 2004

Fx is a growing movement of ordinary people across all denominations who are passionate about connecting with those who don’t know Jesus and forming new communities of faith with the people they meet in the places where they meet them. From new housing to rural, urban to suburban, messy church and third age to forests, coffee shops, beaches, pubs, barns, online and even church buildings.

FRESH EXPRESSIONS USUALLY EMERGE WHEN:

The Spirit of God speaks to people about the missional needs of an area, people group or culture.

When people come together to try and explore something new or take the Church to new ground.

When a local need or hope inspires faithful people who sense God’s prompting to do something about it.

Over 3000 Fresh Expressions are now active around the world. From the initial vision of Archbishop Rowan Williams and the Mission Shaped Church report (2004) a growing movement of practitioners and pioneers have formed Fresh Expressions of Church in the UK, across Europe, North America and Australia.
