Keen to start a fresh expression of church? Before leaping into action, this booklet will help you to 'listen for mission.' This involves developing an attitude where you learn to 'multi-listen' - to God, to society, to your community, to your church - so that you can find out what God is doing and know how best to join in. This short, accessible guide draws together some of the lessons learned so far and enables church councils, deanery synods, circuit meetings and house groups to think through and discuss the various issues involved. It can be used on its own or with the companion DVD - Expressions: the DVD 1: Stories of Church for a Changing Culture.
"We live in a turbulent time of change. Many, beyond the borders of church, are desperate for some sense of spiritual reality. Fresh expressions of church are the green shoots of the future." - The Revd Tom Stuckey, President of Methodist Conference 2005/06 "I'm colossally encouraged by the amount of activity that there seems to be around the church at the moment. There's already a huge amount going on, our job is to join in, to give it the nourishment it needs so that it will grow in the right way. I hope you will give thanks to God and get involved!" - Dr Rowan Williams, Archbishop of Canterbury
I did not have to wait long at all.
