Are fresh expressions really having an impact on the rest of society?

We know that some individuals' lives have been transformed. Some fresh expressions have a strong commitment to social justice and the environment. JustChurch, for example, focuses its worship on writing letters on behalf of lobby groups like Amnesty International.

God seeks to transform society

We believe that increasingly fresh expressions will start with some form of loving service to a neighbourhood or network and build community round that. This starting point puts working for society at the heart of fresh expressions.

How do fresh expressions develop?

Having said all that, many fresh expressions may appear socially conservative, like so much of the British church in practice. We pray that they will become increasingly engaged with society's needs in the years ahead.
