A comprehensive, thorough, and accessible exploration of the theology, theory, and practice of the developing Fresh Expressions of church (FX) movement in the UK. As a Pioneer Minister in the early stages of leading a new contextual church I kept coming across analytical frameworks that allowed me to think more clearly about experiences I am encountering in this ministry. I was also grateful for the rooting of much of this analysis with practical examples. There are areas in which I disagree with the authors, but I cannot argue with the clarity and depth of their arguments. They are robust but generous in their engagement with the critics of the FX movement. They are also not deferential to supporters of FX if they perceive weaknesses in their thinking or practice. All in all a really helpful resource, which I imagine I will be returning to again and again. ( )

Fresh Expressions of Church are one of the most important developments within the contemporary church. There has been and continues to be much learning about how to plant Fresh Expressions of church in contemporary culture and about theological resources to support this.

Topics will include ecclesiology, Fresh Expressions in the New Testament, social forces behind Fresh Expressions today, theologies to underpin fresh expressions, how fresh expressions develop, the missional dynamics involved, discipleship, worship and how Fresh Expressions can be sustained and supported.
