“A Fresh Expression is a form of church for our changing culture established primarily for the benefit of people who are not yet members of any church.”
— Bishop Steven Croft, Church of England

Four Missional Values of Fresh Expressions

Fresh Expressions are created when Christians seek out simple ways to love those around them, create space for community to grow, and expand their definition of what the church can be.

Every Fresh Expression of church is unique. They are found in coffee shops, tattoo parlors, homes, parks, beaches, online spaces, and more. Yet, there are four core missional values that define every Fresh Expression:

INCLUSIVE

A manifestation of God’s outreaching love

2.png

ACCESSIBLE

Culturally appropriate, close, and contextual

3.png

TRANSFIGURATIVE

Reminding of the innate goodness and Imago Dei within

CONNECTIONAL

Existing in a relationship with each other and the wider church

Fresh Expressions is about listening to what the Spirit is already up to in our communities and forming wells for the living water that is already bubbling up from the ground.
