Vision Day for Fresh Expressions

Vision Day for Fresh Expressions

I am organising a Vision Day for Fresh Expressions of Church that encourages people to think about connecting with folk who ‘don’t do church’! (Flier and Publicity Article at www.freshexpressions.org.uk/vision/ipswich13 )

Fresh Expressions works ecumenically and I work closely with ecumenical leaders who have a responsibility for this mission work in the region; Tim Yau (URC Ipswich), Matt Finch  & Jack Lawson(Methodist), Simon Goddard (Baptist).

I am part of the team that hosts the Mission Shaped Ministry Course which is open to all – see www.freshexpressions.org.uk/msm/cambridge13 for the course in Bury St Edmunds starting in September 2013.

On this year’s course we have a good spread of church denominations represented and for those in Suffolk I offer support for those engaged in new ways of mission.  These include Messy Church (x3); Football and Snooker; Acoustic Café; Community Choir and all are ecumenical.

I am happy to speak about Fresh Expressions of Church at Churches Together Meetings and have already spoken at Sudbury and due to speak at Halesworth Churches Together.
