Abstract

The Fresh Expressions movement aims to extend the reach of church life among groups less well accessed by conventional church. This pilot study tests that claim within the framework of psychological type theory. A sample of 74 women and 49 men attending Fresh Expressions completed the Francis Psychological Type Scales to enable their profile to be set alongside the profile of 2,135 women and 1,169 men attending conventional Anglican congregations reported by Francis, Robbins, and Craig (2011). The data provided some support for the view that Fresh Expressions were reaching psychological types other forms of church find it harder to reach.
