Inspire

posted on December 11


Be part of the movement that is taking Church to the people - by creating new communities of faith and revitalizing existing churches into vital communities of faith.

Be inspired!

Every church is unique. Every new faith community and church revitalization will look different - growing and developing in new and creative ways - whether in a more traditional way, as a Fresh Expression of church, or as something as unique as your individual community, such as:

  • Satellite or Multi-site Locations
  • Food Pantries
  • Dinner Church
  • Dog Park Fresh Expression
  • Special Needs Small Groups
  • Tattoo Parlour Fresh Expression
  • Mother/Daughter Church
  • Thrift Stores
  • Coffee Shops
  • And more...you are only limited by your imagination!
Below are some current examples of new and revitalizing faith communities. If you are interested in starting something new, contact us:
