Our taster day is an opportunity to connect and find out more about the proposed ‘Community of Pioneers’ and the Certificate in Pioneer Mission course that will run by the United Reformed Church’s newly formed Newbigin Pioneering Hub.
The interactive day will be led by Newbigin Pioneering Hub leader Rev Dr Ash Barker and CMS’s Jonny Baker with local ‘Stories of Hope’ in Winson Green.
The Certificate in Pioneer Mission is a foundational course designed, run and led by experienced pioneering practitioners for practitioners. Church Mission Society has offered this course around the UK and it will now be available rooted in the United Reformed Church and planted in a live pioneering context in inner city Birmingham. The course will start September 2022 and will include six units run over three weekend residentials, three hybrid (online and in Birmingham) Saturdays and Wednesdays evenings, along with personal coaching.
The Community of Pioneers aims to discover, nurture, empower and release a new generation of Pioneers. This will include helping Pioneers connect with new mission contexts, pathways, retreats and coaching.
Newbigin Pioneering Hub is a collaboration between United Reformed Church, CMS and Seedbeds organisation and named in honour of the inspirational URC Minister and mission theologian Lesslie Newbigin.
