What is Greenhouse?

Design, grow and cultivate fresh expressions of church

The Greenhouse ‘loving-first’ development cycle

Greenhouse is designed to connect teams of people with others who are also finding new ways to share the Good News with their community and grow a fresh expression of church that enables them to grow in their faith.

You don’t need to be a member of clergy or consider yourself a “pioneer” to participate: we know that fresh expressions are very often led by lay-people. And, because there is a lot of variety in fresh expressions, they don’t usually look the same.

It’s this simple: if you have the seed of an idea and are feeling creative, then the practical help offered through participating in a Greenhouse will help you get started.

“Gardens are not made by singing ‘Oh, how beautiful,’ and sitting in the shade.”

Rudyard Kipling
