Our vision days are a great way to discover how you and your church could be reaching new people and helping them grow in their faith. Fresh Expressions’ practitioners will help us explore together what it means to be church in new and creative ways. We’ll provide you with tools to engage with new parts of your community and start or develop mission-focused initiatives, and there will be space for you to prayerfully consider what mission might look like for your congregation and community
We’re running a number of Vision Days where you can find out more about RNP and how you can get started, and our next one is in October 2019:
Date: 12th October
Time: 9.30am-1.30pm with a light lunch provided
Location: Venue 360, 20 Gipsy Lane, Luton, LU1 3JH
One of the most important things we can do to make new disciples of Christ is to pray! We hold regular prayer evenings, where we come together to pray for the work of the RNP team, and the wider Diocesan vision of making new disciples!
For our next prayer event we will be patterning up with Youthscape for an evening of creative worship, art, and prayer for and by young people.
Date: 30th October
Location: Youthscape, Bute Mills, Bute Street, Luton, LU1 2EY
The RNP Indicator Pack has been developed to help you and the Reaching New People team track the outcomes of your missional activities. This enables us to learn from things that are going well and to provide additional support in areas that would benefit from development. Click here for more info on Indicator Packs.
If you are looking to start a Fresh Expression or mission-focused congregation we may be able to help you with a one-off grant or with a grant offered over three years. There are two kinds of grants available depending on if your gathering will meet on a weekly or monthly basis. Click here for more information on applying for a grant.
