Do fresh expressions work better in suburban, rather than rural or urban areas?

Not necessarily. If you look at our website stories or our DVDs you will see a whole range of fresh expressions - some in rural areas and others in the inner city. They meet in village halls, city centre flats, old chapels, and stately homes!

Recent research from Church Army suggests Anglican fresh expressions work in all kinds of areas.

The important thing is that a fresh expression needs to be relevant to the context it finds itself in and that involves a lot of listening and research before you begin to serve the local community and establish a new church.
