Shier-Jones offers a theological and practical guide for pioneer ministers (both ordained and lay) and mission minded congregations on how to initiate and support fresh expressions of Church.

Drawing on Scripture as well as real life case studies, she illustrates best practice - and highlights the possible dangers - in working to transform a God-given vision for mission into a reality.
