You’ll be aware from General Assembly and various news releases that we’re currently recruiting the second cohort of students for the Newbigin Pioneering Hub – training lay people to start (or develop) new forms of church for their specific situation and context – and potential students are still welcome to apply.
The 2022/2023 cohort all felt that they had hugely benefitted from the course – and the ‘hub’ has formed, for mutual support and continuing friendship.
Students study for the CMS Certificate in Pioneer Mission. There are 6 modules, delivered across 10 months, via a mix of weekend residentials, online, day and evenings.
