Stories

Real life, real people, real stories.

There are no experts when it comes to starting and sustaining fresh expressions of church - no one has really been doing it long enough to claim to know it all. But we can learn from one another and so as you explore these stories, look for principles and values rather than simply models to take off the shelf and follow.

Below, you'll find our latest stories and updates, or you can view an alphabetical list of all of our stories.

If you are involved in a fresh expression of church we haven't featured, let us know! Send us your story and we'll be in touch for more information.

Don't forget the power of a good story - Jesus didn't.
