Salisbury Vision Day
Sat, May 6, 2017, 9:00 AM – 3:30 PM EDT
What is Fresh Expressions?
We represent a movement that is dedicated to cultivating new forms of church alongside existing congregations in order to serve our evolving world. Fresh Expressions began in England over ten years ago. Since then, we have helped cultivate over 3,000 innovative “fresh expressions” communities within in the UK alone. In 2010, we expanded to the US and have taken root throughout America. At our heart, Fresh Expressions is about empowering and equipping God’s people to develop creative expressions of church that better connect with our ever-changing society.
What is Vision Day?
Together, we will…
- Hear from fresh expressions practitioners
- Explore current fresh expressions of church that are making a difference
- Learn how to renew existing congregations
- Build networks and relationships
- Share resources and new ideas
- Discuss what is means to be the church and discover new and creative ways to be the church
- Discern what this could mean for your region, community or neighborhood
