What is Fresh Expressions?
A fresh expression of church is a new form of church for a fast-changing world that serves those outside the existing church, listens to people and enters their culture, makes discipleship a priority and intentionally forms Christian community.
The Fresh Expressions organisation exists to encourage and support the fresh expressions movement, working with Christians from a variety of denominations and traditions. The initiative has resulted in hundreds of new congregations being formed alongside more traditional churches. It was started in 2004 by the Archbishops of Canterbury and York with the Methodist Council, but now involves an unparalleled range of partners.
The Rev. Dr. Michael Moynagh, one of the developers of the UK Fresh Expressions movement, is going to be in the diocese, and arrangements have been made for him to spend an afternoon with any interested Episcopalians during the afternoon of Friday, April 12, at St Martin's in Monroeville.
This is open to all Episcopalians, clergy and lay people. Please share this opportunity with leaders in your parish.

Please respond to the Rev. Philip Wainwright at firstname.lastname@example.org if you will be attending.
