School of Pioneers


The School of Pioneers is an exciting new project we are running for pioneers in the Diocese of London in collaboration with CMS. This is the first time the Diocese of London has offered training for lay pioneers.

The school is aimed at lay people in London who are currently involved in pioneer ministry or identified as pioneers in the London Diocese.

It will offer pioneers the chance to understand their calling, and gain the skills, knowledge and understanding to launch and lead pioneer expressions of church (such as missional communities), or community projects (including entrepreneurships) in the Diocese.

We will cover six modules as a part of the school:

  • Introduction to Pioneer Mission
  • Theological Reflection
  • Mission Spirituality
  • Missional Leadership
  • Missional Entrepreneurship
  • Missional Ecclesiology


The School will be run on six weekends throughout 2019 (a full-day Sat and half-day Sun):

Jan 19th-20th, Mar 9th-10th, May 11th-12th, Jul 6th-7th, Sep 21st-22nd, and Nov 16th-17th.

It is non-residential, based in locations across the Diocese of London.
