CMS Oxford Pioneer Open Day and Open Evening 21 June 2021

Neon "Open" sign

Dr Cathy Ross is issuing an invitation to come and see us in person! “Do come and find out about the various options we offer from Certificate through to doctoral level study in person, online and also with a blended approach. You will hear from current students and have an opportunity to ask questions.”

You can attend our next open day on 21 June in one of two Zoom sessions: 10.30am to 1pm or 7.30pm to 9pm

Places are virtually unlimited! So, the only question is – are you interested?

Our open days provide a great chance to explore your calling, your feelings and your mission, and to look further into where you think God is leading you.

I’ve said it before but many of our students say studying with us is like coming home, that it feels like family – and we love to hear that!

One of our postgraduate students, Dom Clarke, told me: “Pioneering is a hope for the church.” When I asked him about the course, he said “My highlight was new ways of looking at what we do and how we do it with the other pioneers on the course – for example African spirituality.”

We have so many new things to bring this coming academic year. Our MA will now offer two options, a focus on pioneering and a new route with a focus on African Christian Diaspora.

We are offering the whole MA online, as well as a mixture of face to face and online options for modules on our postgraduate and undergraduate courses.

We train ordinands in the Church of England, and work through a partnership with Ripon College Cuddesdon. If you are on that journey, you may like to explore this with us (even if you are not a designated pioneer, you could train with us).

We have a lot of experience in training pioneers to use their gifts, especially ‘the gift of not fitting in’. So why not join us for an open day, or email for more information. See how you can not fit in, together with us, and start something exciting and new in 2021.

If you wish to join us for either session, you must book in advance.

Please email me, Helen Harwood, on

Updated 17 June to reflect the cancellation of an in-person sesssion, due to government guidance.
