At the Breakout gathering our new pioneer community, called home, was launched. It’s Community Guardian is Adrian Chatfield. It provides a community at the heart of CPL which is about meeting, supporting and investing. It provides pioneers with the stability of a home and the disciplines of a measured rhythm of life.
CPL were one of the hosts of the fifth annual Pioneers Breakout Gathering. Over 100 pioneers from a variety of denoninations came together to think about the vital issues of discipleship. There was input from Stuart Murray Williams but most of the time was learning from each other about what discipleship means in our new missionary context.

The Second International Conference, which we hosted with Fresh Expressions was a great sucess. We had over 80 delegates from 11 different nations including Canada, Germany, South Africa and New Zealand plus 20 guests from the UK. Speakers included Graham Cray and Tim Harris from Australia. But there was lots of time for people to here what is happening in other countries and for delegates to learn that they are not alone in this and we are becoming a worldwide movement.
Recordings from the conference can be found at http://www.freshexpressions.org.uk/events/international13
Please note, we have had to make a change to one of the dates advertised for Pioneer School. The session on Mission Shaped Discipleship will now be Saturday 15th March, not Saturday 8th March.
We had an amazing conference 1-6 Sept 2013. Around 100 people gathered in Cambridge, UK from 11 different countries, to share their experiences of pioneering and working within fresh expressions.
What a fantastic time we had – encouraging and affirming each other, hearing from some of the world’s experts in this area and making new friends. It was a privilege to meet you all, thank you
