Welcome to the website for Fresh Expressions and innovative mission projects in the Withington Deanery (South Manchester).

Here you can read about our work with schools, Messy Church, new gatherings for worship and discipleship, missional communities, and projects to connect with those beyond the walls of our churches or on the fringe.

Our blog provides updates on new initaitives, development of existing ones, resources, research and mapping of Fresh Expressions in the deanery and beyond.

If you’d like to know more about any specific project or about Fresh Expressions in general, please contact our Fresh Expressions Enabler, Mark Hewerdine.
