Fresh Expressions vision events are dynamic ways to explore new ways of being church and how to form them. Over 6,000 people in over 80 places in the UK and worldwide have discovered more about fresh expressions of church and have come away with a real desire to work with God and develop their dreams. In a fun and interactive way, vision events give you the chance to:

  • share your story;
  • think about what it is to be church;
  • ask questions;
  • find out about fresh expressions;
  • discover resources;
  • build networks and relationships.

Vision events are ideal for complete beginners, those with real questions about fresh expressions and mission-shaped church, people who have started something new and need some practical help, and Christians from all churches and traditions.
Pete Atkins, convener of the Fresh Expressions training hub, says, ‘Each vision event is carefully planned in partnership with local churches to ensure that it is relevant in that particular area and context.’
