"I've practically 'worn out' the first Expressions DVD, I've used it so much! These new, powerful and inspiring stories reflect that, whatever your context, with God ordinary folk really can do extraordinary things. Go for it - you CAN do it!" Sally Thornton, Methodist Local Preacher and Fresh Expressions Associate Minister
"I'm colossally encouraged by the amount of activity that there seems to be around the church at the moment. This DVD tells part of this new story: I hope you will watch it, give thanks to God and get involved!" Dr Rowan Williams, Archbishop of Canterbury
