Fresh Expressions in Bristol Diocese

the CPAS Leadership blog has an interview with Bishop Mike Hill, Bishop of Bristol, about fresh expressions and the 'mixed economy' church (one which combines the best of traditional church life with innovative outreach, mission, and new forms of church).

The interview links to this great little page on the Bristol Diocese website, which has 6 videos of different fresh expressions (definition: forms of church for our changing culture, established primarily for the benefit of people who are not yet members of any church) within the diocese. The Diocese of Bristol - this is an Anglican diocese, by the way, for folk from other churches who are rubbing their eyes at this point and wondering what was in the mulled wine last night - has it's own church planting policy. I wonder if our folks in Bath and Wells ever talk to them....
