Parish-Based Pioneer Ministry

Our focus at Sarum College is on Parish-based Pioneers who develop fresh expressions of church from a parish base to expanding the growth and reach of the local church.

The Pioneer pathway is based in our standard ordination pathway, two years full time or three years part time. The particular focus on Pioneer ministry is through:

  • Pioneering training context
  • Placement in one (or more) pioneering situations – the ability and willingness to observe different projects nationally will be an advantage here
  • Linking students into Pioneer networks where possible

Pioneers fulfil the Ordained Pioneer Ministry formation requirements alongside the  standard core training, for example including leading Common Worship Daily Prayer at residentials.
