The main areas of the centre’s life are:
- Resourcing and supporting.
We provide training for all pioneers, lay and ordained, across the denominations. Primarily this is provided through pioneer schools, various conferences, the Breakout Conference, retreats,mentoring and consultations.
- Formal Training
We oversee the Ordained Pioneer Ministry Track at Ridley and Westcott for those wanting to train for ordination in the Church of England. We also provide a Foundation Degree with Cambridge CYM in Pioneering and are involved in an MA in Mission taught in Cambridge.
- International Relations
We provide training and networking for pioneers from across the world so that we can all learn from each other in these exciting times. Every two years we host an International Conference in Cambridge. We have been involved in conferences recently in Canada, USA and Australia.
We aim to provide research facilities for pioneers and researchers who want to develop their research or want some space for a sabbatical or reading and study.
- Foundations fund
We are seeking to bring pioneers, entrepreneurs and potential places together to resource many more pioneering projects.
- Associates and partnerships
We partner with many other people and organisations to help the work of pioneers develop and flourish. We would always prefer to work with others who share our pioneering DNA.
The centre has grown over the last five years with the suport of the Diocese of Ely and two Anglican theological colleges in Cambridge, Westcott House and Ridley Hall.These three bodies are currently the stakeholders of the centre, ensure this work is rooted in the life of the church and they provide oversight of the centre.
