Gather! This year’s unique virtual pioneer festival

A day festival in gathertown celebrating and exploring pioneer practice.

About this Event

CMS annual gathering and conversations day for pioneers – this year in Gather.town – an online environment that is fun, dynamic and easy to navigate. We’ll be exploring Pioneer Practice – sharing wisdom, struggles, stories and how it works on the ground. Think virtual festival: multiple venues, interactive labyrinth and prayer spaces, themed conversations, research findings, workshops, networking spaces – a place to meet friends old and new, to be inspired and encouraged. We hope EVERYONE will come! You are welcome… if you are a pioneer, if you are interested in pioneering or mission (or both!), if you want to spend time with pioneers or cheer them on. And from anywhere in the world if you can make the time difference work. A gathering perhaps like no other – join us whether you are just starting out or have blazed a trail and have wisdom to share.

The details:

  • 21 April 2021
  • Programme from 10.30am to 10pm UK time**
  • Cost: £19, or £9 if you are a student or hard up – we trust your judgement.
  • The first 25 tickets booked will get a free printed copy of Pioneer Practice, a full colour book we’re producing on the theme with 200 pages of practical wisdom for pioneers, to be published in April.
Doors will open at 9.30am so you will have an hour to explore and meet people. Then the day programme will run from 10.30am-4.30pm with plenty of breaks. And then there will be an evening programme from 7.30pm. So it will not be online for 12 hours! And of course you can opt in and out as you wish.

See you there!
