The Emerging Church Term Makes a Comeback

After being dormant for ten years, the term “Emerging Church” is being used to describe the strategic efforts of the Church of England.

β€œThe 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.”

I wonder if we will see the term come back into circulation?
