Fresh Expressions A new initiative for changing times. Our world is changing. At least 60% of the UK population is now beyond the reach of the churches. This proportion grows each year.
The Church of England and the Methodist Church want to establish many different fresh expressions of church life in the next decade to carry the gospel to every part of our society.
