Why do we need Fresh Expressions?

Fresh Expressions mark an important change in mission perception, from the past dominant desire to help new people become like us, to a mentality to travel out to groups unlike us and form church with and for them, where they are.

Fresh Expressions exists as a missional movement, seeking to reach out to those people not yet attending Church. This can seem a obvious motive, yet it asks questions of a religious approach in this country which for many decades has presumed knowledge of the Christian story, an openness to the local Church and the importance of faith in society. These things are beginning to change.

The Mission Shaped Church report of 2004 identified culture change and changing attitudes to church as major elements in the changing landscape of faith in the UK.
