Holy Rumpus in Bath and Wells
Church Mission Society and Bath and Wells Diocese have joined forces to launch a new regional hub, known locally as the ‘Holy Rumpus’, to train lay people in pioneering mission.
The Holy Rumpus will offer the nationally recognised CMS Certificate in Pioneer Mission and is for people looking to develop both their understanding and practice of pioneering mission. Study will be based around six modules, namely: what is pioneer mission?, reading the Bible for context, doing theology, mission spirituality, mission ecclesiology and pioneering in the rural church.
Course leaders are experienced practitioners as well as established speakers and writers on pioneer mission.
Modules will run from Friday evening to Sunday lunchtime in locations identified as Pioneer Hotspots in the diocese. This will enable students to get first hand experience of different pioneer contacts.
The first module is scheduled for Friday 3 to Sunday 5 May 2019. Subsequent dates are as follows: 5-7 July 2019
- 13-15 September 2019
- 8-10 November 2019
- 17-19 January 2020
- 20-22 March 2020
The Holy Rumpus pioneer training hub is part of CMS’s growing network of training hubs for lay pioneers that is being developed in partnership with dioceses around the country.
