Pioneer Ministry in the Eastern Synod
The Bridge Logo
The metaphor of 'a bridge' useful when thinking about church and the pioneering. The Church's role is to reconnect people with God, frustratingly the culture that separates us from God is constantly moving and just when we think we've got a grip on it, it changes. This story is reflected in the design of logo for the ministry. The orange represents the dawn of a new day, the Orwell Bridge identifies it with Ipswich, and we only see half the bridge because we don't always get the full picture with God, we have to take a step of faith.
What is a Fresh Expression of Church?
A fresh expression is a form of church for our changing culture, established primarily for the benefit of people who are not yet members of any church.
- It will come into being through principles of listening, service, incarnational mission and making disciples;
- It will have the potential to become a mature expression of church shaped by the gospel and the enduring marks of the church and for its cultural context.
