On Saturday May 9, over eighty people, clergy and lay from Niagara and Huron attended our first Fresh Expression Vision Day at St. James Dundas. Over twenty parishes were represented with some bringing teams of four or more. Presenters Nick Brotherwood and Ryan Sim led the group through a variety of video and PowerPoint presentations as well as interactive, hands on activities designed to help participants to think about doing church in new and innovative ways to reach out to the unchurched and dechurched alike.
The day emphasized a mixed economy approach to mission, where fresh expressions of church and traditional forms of church as we know them appear together. We concluded with a question and answer session where Bishop Michael joined the panel and articulated his passion for the role Fresh Expressions will play in the Diocesan Vision.
