New Expressions of Church, 2-day Conference
led by Ed Olsworth-Peter, with Bishop Ric Thorpe
Wednesday 9th & Thursday 10th October.
This 2-day residential conference will take stock of where we are at the moment in terms of Resource Churches, church planting, Fresh Expressions and pioneering, and help parishes to develop Fresh Expressions and pioneer ministries in their own context.
Bishop Ric will lead a discussion about new forms of church, with Tim Watson, Pioneer Minister in Gosport and Alex Wood of Harbour Church, Portsmouth.
Ed Olsworth-Peter will lead a series of discussions on how we can establish Fresh Expressions and Pioneer Ministry in our own parishes.
Ed Olsworth-Peter was appointed National Pioneer Development Advisor in May 2018. His role co-ordinates work in the Church of England between Dioceses and Pioneer networks to develop an integrated vision, strategy and practice for pioneer ministry in the Church of England.
Bishop Ric Thorpe has been Bishop of Islington since 2015. He was previously the Bishop of London’s Adviser for Church Planting and Rector of St Paul’s Shadwell. He contributes to the School of Church Growth in association with the staff of St Mellitus theological college.
