Share booklets

In recent years, hundreds of new churches have been formed. These 'fresh expressions' are aiming to create church among people who have never belonged to a church, or who once did, but belong no more.

Share booklets combine spiritual insight with practical knowledge to offer guidance in starting and sustaining a fresh expression of church.

Recommendations

Another great resource from Fresh Expressions. The booklets in this series are intensely practical and an invaluable addition to the toolkit of anyone who takes contemporary mission seriously.
Ian Bell, Coordinator, VentureFX, Methodist Church

These booklets are a simple starter kit to put in the hands of pioneers. They are full to the brim of ideas, practical wisdom and stories. They will help you to catch a vision, take the first steps together and sustain new communities of faith for those outside the churches.
Steven Croft, Bishop of Sheffield

This booklet series will help you to consider your mission heart, your mission team, your mission values and your mission focus. It is a must in the process of listening to God in mission, a vital resource for potential pioneers.
Francis Brienen, Secretary for Mission, United Reformed Church

It's about time someone distilled the wisdom learned through fresh exrpessions into a format that is simple, practical and not overly prescriptive. The Share booklets seem to be exactly that - what a great idea!
Jonny Baker, pioneer mission leadership team, CMS
