Fresh Expressions in the Diocese of Niagara
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
- it will come into being through principles of listening, service, incarnational mission and making disciples
- it will have the potential to become a mature expression of church shaped by the gospel and the enduring marks of the church and for its cultural context
Attending a Fresh Expressions Vision Day is the first step on the journey to re-imagining church and re-discovering mission. Eighty participants joined Bishop Michael for Niagara’s first Vision Day on May 9, 2009 at St. James Dundas.
Doing Church Differently and More - Stories from the UK
Two very successful Messy Fiestas were held in April/May, 2010 (St. George's Georgetown and St. John's Thorold). A Messy Fiesta is a full day workshop to learn about Messy Church. Messy Church aims to create the opportunity for adults and children to enjoy expressing their creativity, sit down together to eat a meal, experience worship and have fun within a church context.
