'...an excellent project and much needed. It will take thinking on pioneer ministry beyond how to get started and grapple with the issues of ongoing care of communities, conflict and discipleship.' Revd Dr Steve Croft, Archbishop's Missioner

Until now, Fresh Expressions has been about starting and sustaining mission initiatives among people with little or no church contact.

As these projects mature, pastoral problems easily arise - how do you integrate the old with the new? How do you get an established congregation to change it views and practices? How do you cope with conflict? What if newcomers challenge set patterns of church behaviour rather than conform with them?

The publication is structured for use for training in local churches, theological colleges and as a research tool in postgraduate study.

Sara Savage, Eolene Boyd-Macmillan

DR SARA SAVAGE co-authored the influential report Making Sense of Generation Y (Church House Publishing).

'The first text book for the mixed economy arrived on my desk this month and it's brilliant. The Human Face of the Church: a social psychology and pastoral theology resource for pioneer and traditional ministry is by Sara Savage and Eolene Boyd Macmillan and published by Canterbury Press. It has excellent chapters on conflict, team-work and empowering leadership. My favourite so far is on Difficult People...'Revd Dr Steven Croft, Archbishops' Missioner and Leader of Fresh Expressions

'Unlike books that offer quick-fix "do-it-like-this" instructions about how to sort out issues in the church, this is a book that encourages understanding of the underlying issues: it is written in a way that encourages intelligent engagement, with helpful boxes suggesting 'discussion points' and 'Pause for thought'.  This is a book that will be used.  It's got many of the models I have found most useful, and I like the style" Adult Education Friday Mailing December 2007 

'... several people said how useful they found The Human Face of the Church, Sarah Savage and Eolene Boyd-Macmillan , described by one as a "Must have". Joanna Cox's Adult Education Mailing, April 2008

'The great strength of this book is its stated purpose. It gives the framework through which fresh expressions and new forms of church can be understood and then welcomed into the lifeblood of a growing and emerging church.' Malcolm Grundy, Director of the Foundation for Church Leadership.
