Emerging Church term makes a comeback

We haven’t seen these words much at all over the past ten years but at the General Synod 2021, Emerging Church is presented as the term to cover much of the strategic work of The Church of England for the next decade. Exciting!

“The Emerging Church of England is the name for four strands of work which together will help leaders in every diocese to discern the shape, life and activity of the Church of England in the 2020s. The main aim of the Emerging Church of England is to follow a shared vision – to share what God has done for us in Jesus Christ and continues to do through the Holy Spirit – with simpler national governance structures.”
