Coloured candlesThis section of the Guide contains some examples of fresh expressions of church to whet your appetite and feed your imagination. It also suggests some things to bear in mind if you start a fresh expression of church in one of the contexts listed below.

If the experience of pioneers suggests one piece of advice, it would be this: listen carefully to the context before you copy what others have done. What worked elsewhere may not work with you. You may have to adapt it or do something completely different. Careful attention to the context and the Spirit will help you discern what God is calling you to.

The list below is just a start - if you have further suggestions you'd like to help us with, please contact us.
