Church plants are typically where a sizeable group of people are sent to set up a new Church or to reinvigorate an existing Church (though these latter are really church grafts/ revitalising we will list some here so that we can cover the needs of more parishes).

There are a whole variety of ways that these can come into being. It might be that a church has closed down and a team from a neighbouring church opens it again; it might be that there is an area of the parish that is remote from the parish church (in distance or sociologically); it might be that a church asks for support from another church and there is an agreement to some people coming to help them.
