The Spring date for the National Anglican Community of Pioneers has been announced.
The team are asking you to save the date of 21st March 2020 for the next meet up in a venue to be announced.
The National Anglican Community of Pioneers exists to be a collective voice for all Pioneers, lay and ordained, as we call out the pioneering vocation in ourselves and others. They advocate and support the ministry of pioneers and look to these gatherings to be places of mutual learning, listening and support.
The winter meet up saw 70 people gather at The Printhouse in Sheffield. We were joined by Paul Bradbury and Bishop Ric Thorpe who helped us to explore ‘The Pioneer Spectrum’ and ‘ How to resource Pioneer Ministry’. The day offered opportunity for people to talk, share, pray, connect and debate. This growing community seeks to offer support for those engaging in pioneering – whether lay or ordained, working full time or doing so in their spare time. It also seeks to be an advocate for key pioneer issues in the Church of England and is a network that supports and promotes pioneer development across dioceses. If you are an Anglican pioneer practitioner or support pioneers in the Church of England as part of your role – then we’d love to see you at the spring meet up. The day will be hosted by Ed Olsworth-Peter, Bishop Mike Harrison and the wonderful NACP guiding team.
