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 second meeting, "Fresh Expression of Worship (looking at different ways, styles, days/times etc of worship), and a meeting surrounding this will take place on Tuesday 12th February 7.30pm at Kingsleigh. for more information, speak to Rev Viv
