Supporting a fresh expression of church
Our Share booklet, encouraging a fresh expression of church, explores in detail how to support and encourage a fresh expression of church.
In addition, there are some particular strategies and instruments that have been put in place to grow and support the fresh expressions movement across the UK.
A Bishop's Mission Order is a device in the Church of England that allows a bishop to directly allow and support a church planting initiative that would cross parish boundaries or involve collaboration between parishes.
These have transformed the legal position of church planting in the Church of England, along with a Code of Practice to guide their implementation.
Fresh Expressions Area Strategy Teams (FEASTs) promote and establish fresh expressions of church in particular geographical areas.
We asked a training minister and his trainee pioneer to pass on their experience of working together.
