Pioneer ministries and fresh expressions of church


Monday, 22 February 2010

First project starts in Sheffield

The first VentureFX project to get underway is in Sheffield.  Working in the Handsworth and Ecclesall Road areas, Ric Stott has begun to work with a small team to pioneer work with 20 - 30 years olds using arts-based activities.

Ric has art training and sees this as an exciting and creative way of reaching people who don't normally come to church.  Already there has been significant interest in what Ric is doing, and new opportunities are opening up all the time. Ultimately it is hoped that some kind of fresh expression of church will develop but for the moment Ric is trying to make links and establish relationships. 

Please pray for Ric and this project.


  1. Great to see this started. May the Spirit fill the sails.

  2. Best hair/stubble combo in contemporary British Methodism?
