Sorted is a successful Fresh Expression of church based in Bradford, which has now sent out pioneers using the lessons learnt to begin planting a fresh expression in Thamesmead, London and begin a pioneering project in Nairobi, Kenya. The Fresh Expressions story has been well-told, but there have been relatively few attempts to relate the experiences and methodologies the author and his team have learnt over 10 years of pioneering Sorted (3 fresh expressions of church), so that pioneers, missionaries and the wider Church may be better equipped and informed when pioneering fresh expressions, mission communities and church plants in a whole range of different contexts. Relevant and timely, this book aims to share these lessons and methodologies using the Sorted story.

MEDIA REVIEWS
"This excellent book draws on long and earthed experience. Andy Milne writes with immense practical application from remarkable leadership of Sorted in Bradford. This book demonstrates how vision is useless without strategic adaptability, personal resilience, creative energy and Christ-filled commitment to young people where they are. I strongly commend it. -- The Rt Revd Nick Baines, Bishop of Leeds
"It is rare that a fresh expression of Church matures to the point that it gives birth to another one, let alone that happening several times over. This set of young churches share the Sorted DNA yet each one is distinctly itself. Church Army Evangelist, Andy Milne, has done the wider Church a great service by reflecting perceptively on what has worked, what is transferable and what is contextual. All this comes without hype, but with clarity and credibility. The book rightly covers both the missional and ecclesial aspects of the art of growing young churches. It deserves to become a standard text for pioneers and planters of all kinds of fresh expression of Church - not just those working with youth." -- Canon Dr. George Lings, Director of Church Army's Research Unit
"This is a brilliant book! Sorted Church has changed the lives of hundreds of young people and this book tells the story of how Andy pioneered this project. What makes this book special is that Andy shares his experience, his learning and his wisdom so that other people can plant youth churches in their local areas. I dare you to read this book and then have a go at pioneering something new..." -- Mark Russell, Chief Executive, Church Army
"Any advice from someone who has done it is always worth listening to. Andy does a great job in both telling the story of Sorted but also helping other people to think about how you start something new. His experience and wisdom is worth listening to and hopefully acting upon." -- David Male
`as part of Sorted's oversight group for a number of years I have seen the challenges it has faced and its considerable achievements at first had. As a researcher and trainer in contextual mission and fresh expressions I have learnt much from the way Sorted has enabled young people with no church connection to become disciples of Christ and create their own Christian community. I believe there are many lessons here for others who want see Christian communities emerge among those beyond the normal reach of the church, and not just for young people either.' -- Steve Hollinghurst
