Newbigin Pioneering Hub

26 June 2024

The CMS awarded Certificate in Pioneer Mission

This is the foundational course designed and led by experienced pioneering practitioners, for practitioners. Church Mission Society offers this course around the UK and now it’s available to all, rooted in the United Reformed Church in partnership with the Congregational Federation and planted in a live pioneering context in inner city Birmingham.

The course starts in September and includes 6 units run over 3 weekend residentials, seminars at Lodge Road Community Church, Birmingham on 3 full Saturdays in-person and 3 Wednesday evenings online, as well as online learning circles and personal coaching. There is also a final pitch of your pioneering project to a resource panel and graduation. Certificates are awarded following submission of 6 assignments, and payment of fees, giving the option to apply for URC Assembly Accreditation for Lay Pioneers.

Find out more at a taster event with Ash Barker. This is on Thursday 27 June at 7pm and will be an opportunity to ask Ash any questions that you may have and for him to give a taster of the programme.
