On Saturday 21st Sept, we here, at St Cuthberts hosted the very first Fresh Expressions vision day in this area. I am pleased to tell you that it was a great success, with almost double the anticipated numbers turning out! With over 40 people representing 4 different Christian denominations it certainly made for some great discussions about moving forward and engaging in mission.
During the day we had the chance to worship, listen and explore fresh ways of connecting with those people in our local area who don’t yet openly express faith. We had the chance to listen to 4 different practitioners, who brought a wealth of insight and experience. Some participants commented by saying “It was like someone breathing fresh air into our thoughts and mind set about mission in, and through the local church.”
We hope to build upon this day and continue to develop our missional discussions over the coming months.
