Fresh Expressions Gathering - Swanwick
@The Hayes Conference Centre Swanwick Alfreton DE55 1AU
These gatherings are where then future dreams of the movement begin to hit the ground as we discuss big issues and share our practice from around the country. Network animator Tim Lea shares: God’s Spirit is on the move in a whole variety of new, exciting and different ways. We want to continue to join in with that movement as it evolves and changes. The gathering is open to anyone who is interested in connecting and networking with fellow practitioners in fresh expressions of church and those who are involved in enabling and advocating for them. You might be leading a Messy Church, setting up a network of new Missional Communities, pioneering in whole new context, leading a project, trying to deliver the mixed economy across an area or embedding Fresh Expressions within a church organisation/denomination. If any of those sound like you, why not come along? Our theme will be Connecting: connecting with God, each other and across the FX movement.
