5 Fresh Expressions Training

6 vision days Today I learnt that Fresh Expressions of Church is not just the latest buzz word. I see its impact. John Grice at the Oswestry Vision Day Our Rural Fresh Expressions Conference was so encouraging both because of the great interest from rural churchgoers but also because we heard of so many exciting and innovative things already going on. We should have more of these Vision Days Alan Smith, Bishop of St Albans

7 vision days the evaluations for the three Vision Days which took place in October, in Alberta, Nova Scotia and Newfoundland were all very positive. People expressed greater appreciation for the "new look" powerpoint presentations. Many of the changes you have made, are in fact ones that we were thinking needed to be made.

Whether youre part of an established traditional church or part of a new emerging church, Mission Shaped Intro will help you rethink and reach out in fresh ways.
