Fresh Expressions

What is Fresh Expressions? Fresh Expressions is a movement that is cultivating new forms of church alongside existing congregations in order to reach a changing world. Begun in England 10 years ago, it has resulted in the birth of over 2,500 new communities in the UK alone. Fresh Expressions has spread to Australia, Canada, New Zealand, and is also taking shape in the US. At its heart, Fresh Expressions is about empowering and equipping God’s people to develop creative expressions of church that can reach the increasingly diverse and growing unchurched population of our society.

In the year 2017, it has become increasingly difficult for churches to find new members. Schedules are overbooked, people are distracted and time seems to be a premium. To offset these challenges, a movement called "Fresh Expressions" is emerging in the United States. What started primarily in the British Methodist Church and Church of England has filtered into the US, Australia, Canada, New Zealand and Germany.

The Alabama-West Florida Conference has launched the Fresh Expressions initiative to help churches reach people for Christ. Full story here.
